Tonight's Yankees/Orioles Game Postponed Due to Heavy Rain

In what can almost be described as a fortunate break, tonight's Yankees/Orioles game at Camden Yards has been postponed due to heavy rain, ESPN New York's Wallace Matthews reports.

Apparently, the forecast in Baltimore calls for consistent showers this evening, weather that obviously can't be played through.

So, as is customary for MLB, the contest has been delayed until September 12, when it will be made up as part of a double header during the Yanks' last visit to the city this season. 

Remember, tonight's middle game was set to feature a pitching matchup between the usually inconsistent Shane Greene and Wei-Yin Chen, likely meaning this news is good for the currently-struggling Yankees.

No, it doesn't guarantee that Chen won't still throw tomorrow, but according to Matthews it will give a Greene a week off, as New York will stay with their original plan to start Michael Pineda (2-2, 1.83 ERA in 4 starts in April) in this series' finale.

Over the last three days, as you probably already know, the Yankees have somehow never won, scoring just four runs during that time including three in yesterday's blowout loss, one in which they surrendered multiple leads early on.
