The Baltimore Orioles’ scheduled game against the visiting Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday was postponed due to inclement weather in the area.

The teams will make it up with a single-admission doubleheader on Saturday, Sept. 11 in Baltimore. Both games of the doubleheader will be seven innings, starting at 4:35 p.m. ET. Game 2 will begin approximately 45 minutes after the first game concludes.

The American League East rivals were meant to play the rubber match of a three-game series Thursday. The Orioles, owners of the worst record in the AL, opened a six-game homestand Tuesday with a 7-5 win over Toronto. The Blue Jays responded Wednesday with a 10-2 drubbing of Matt Harvey and the home team.

The Blue Jays will head south for a three-game series at the Tampa Bay Rays before the All-Star break. The Orioles are scheduled for three more home games against the AL Central-leading Chicago White Sox.
