Yankees-Orioles series finale rained out

The New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles had their series finale postponed on Sunday due to inclement weather.

They’ll make it up as part of a split admission doubleheader on Aug. 25.

The Yankees have been especially hard-hit by weather concerns this season, having already had seven games postponed. They travel to Detroit on Monday for a doubleheader against the Tigers to make up for two of those rainouts.

“I think we handle it pretty well,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said, per MLB.com. “You’ve just got to try and appreciate a little bit of the day off now. Recharge the battery a little bit, stay off your legs knowing we’ve got a doubleheader tomorrow and then rolling into Toronto late at night for two games, and knowing you’ve got a day off behind it. Obviously these games are building up, but it’s also something that we understand is out of our control.”

The first contest of the four-game series was also rained out and will be part of a July 9 doubleheader. The Yankees swept the Orioles in the two games the teams did play.

The Yankees also have a June 18 doubleheader against the Nationals in Washington, D.C. to make up for a suspended game on May 15.
