Orioles-Rays Weekend Series Moves From Baltimore To The Trop

Amid violence in Baltimore, the Orioles weekend series against the Tampa Bay Rays -- originally scheduled for May 1 -3  in Baltimore -- will now be played in at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, with the Orioles serving as the home team.

The Orioles have also postponed a second straight game against the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday after a night of rioting near Camden Yards.

The team announced later Tuesday that the Orioles-White Sox series would resume on Wednesday at 2:05 p.m. but that the game would be closed to the public.

Meanwhile public schools were closed on Tuesday, and Baltimore's mayor imposed a 10 p.m.-to-5 a.m. curfew.

The Orioles called off the game after consulting with Major League Baseball, and state and local officials, according to a news release from the team:
