O's to play twin bill Thursday after rainouts

BALTIMORE -- Wednesday's game between the Orioles and the Pittsburgh Pirates has been postponed because of rain, and it will be made up as part of a single-admission doubleheader Thursday that will begin at 4:05 p.m. ET.

Bud Norris will start Game 1 for the Orioles, with righty Chris Tillman slated to pitch in Game 2.

Fans with tickets for Wednesday night's game will need to exchange their tickets to attend the doubleheader. Tickets for Tuesday's game, which was also moved, are valid for both games on Thursday, and fans should bring their original tickets to the ballpark gates for admission.

All ballpark gates will open at 3 p.m. ET, and parking lots will open at 2 p.m. ET. Prepaid parking permits dated for April 29 or 30 are valid for the doubleheader.

Fans unable to attend the doubleheader on Thursday can exchange their tickets from Tuesday or Wednesday for any remaining home game this season on a "dollar-for-dollar" basis. All exchanges are subject to availability and must be completed by June 30. Complimentary tickets are non-exchangeable.

Ticket exchanges can be performed at the Box Office or submitted in writing along with the original tickets and mailed via certified mail by June 30 to:
Baltimore Orioles
Attention: April 29/30 Rainout
333 West Camden Street
Baltimore, MD 21201

The "I Like Our Guys" T-shirt, scheduled to be distributed to all fans at Wednesday night's game, will instead be given to all fans attending Thursday's doubleheader.
