BALTIMORE (WJZ/AP) — Tuesday night’s Orioles vs. Rays game been postponed due to weather.

Bad weather was expected deep into Tuesday night, so the game was called two hours before the scheduled first pitch.

The game will be made up as part of single-admission doubleheader on May 12.

It’s the 27th major league game to be postponed this season, the most related to weather through April since the commissioner’s office started keeping records in 1986.

The postponement comes at a good time for the Orioles, who are hampered by injuries and have lost nine of 10 games to fall 11 games under .500 (6-17).

Baltimore’s projected starting lineup did not include infielder Tim Beckham, who’s been bothered by a groin injury and is expected to land on the 10-day disabled list.
