Wednesday night Orioles rainout open sports thread

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

There's no Orioles baseball to be had on Wednesday night either, but you might find some other sports worth watching. Or you can continue to talk about soap operas or something. It's cool.

Tonight's Orioles game, as the reporters would say, has been banged. It will be made up as part of a single-admission doubleheader on Thursday, beginning at 4:05 in the afternoon. Two games for the price of one is a good deal for baseball.

If you have tickets to Tuesday's game, you can use those tickets for both games tomorrow. If you have tickets to Wednesday's game and want to attend tomorrow, you must exchange them for equivalent seats. Or you can just buy a ticket and go. The "I Like Our Guys" t-shirt giveaway scheduled for tonight's game will be handed out to all fans in attendance tomorrow. They claim they will have enough to give them away even to late arrivals. That may even prove to be true.

As for tonight, well, there's no game. They were also rained out in Philadelphia, New York, and Boston. It is not raining everywhere. Two games have already concluded today, with the Cardinals beating the Brewers 9-3 in a game that saw Matt Garza leave early due to an unspecified injury. Also, the Tigers beat the White Sox, 5-1, perhaps the inevitable outcome in a game started by Hector Noesi.

Here are the games that will presumably not be rained out:

Indians @ Angels, 7:05
Probable pitchers: Zach McAllister (CLE), C.J. Wilson (LA)

A West Coast game starting at the sane time of 7:05 Eastern? What is going on here?

Cubs @ Reds, 7:10
Probable pitchers: Edwin Jackson (CHI), Tony Cingrani (CIN)

Braves @ Marlins, 7:10
Probable pitchers: Aaron Harang (ATL), Nate Eovaldi (MIA)

Athletics @ Rangers, 8:05
Probable pitchers: Jesse Chavez (OAK), Robbie Ross (TEX)

Blue Jays @ Royals, 8:10
Probable pitchers: Drew Hutchison (TOR), Yordano Ventura (KC)

Hopefully Ventura can do to one of the Orioles division rivals what he did to the Orioles last time out.

Dodgers @ Twins, 8:10
Probable pitchers: Zach Greinke (LA), Kyle Gibson (MIN)

Nationals @ Astros, 8:10
Probable pitchers: Jordan Zimmermann (WAS), Brett Oberholtzer (HOU)

Rockies @ Diamondbacks, 9:40
Probable pitchers: Jordan Lyles (COL), Josh Collmenter (ARI)

Padres @ Giants, 10:15
Probable pitchers: Robbie Erlin (SD), Tim Hudson (SF)

Elsewhere in the wide world of sports, there is a bevy of Game 7s in the opening round of the NHL playoffs. The Flyers go up against the Rangers, the Wild play the Avalanche, and the Kings play the Sharks. I've got to imagine being at any one of those would be exciting.

Also, in basketball, there are some Game 5s. In a battle for Texas supremacy, where even the winner loses by virtue of still being in Texas, the Dallas Mavericks take on the San Antonio Spurs. Former Maryland Terrapin Greivis Vasquez plays for the Toronto Raptors, who are taking on the Brooklyn Nets. Each of these series is knotted at two games apiece. The Portland Trail Blazers will be looking to finish off the Houston Rockets in Houston, as they lead 3-1.
