Tuesday night rainout open sports thread

There is rain in Baltimore, fifty miles east, but there are other sports to watch on Tuesday night, if it doesn't end up raining there too.

Patrick Smith

It is Tuesday night, and due to rain in the Baltimore area, there will be no Orioles game to be found tonight. The game is postponed until Thursday, May 1, at 7:05pm. Heavy rain expected all day tomorrow means it could be a doubleheader on Thursday. One rainout at a time.

Other baseball may be found tonight, though much of that may also be rain-sodden. A game in Minnesota between the Twins and the Dodgers was actually snowed out. The perils of outdoor baseball in April in these climates.

In other sports action, far less likely to be rained out since they play indoors, there is a potentially decisive Game 6 to be played between the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers in hockey, and also some NBA playoff games. The Washington Wizards and Chicago Bulls are set to play Game 5 of their series in Chicago, with the Wizards clinching the series with a win, while the Memphis Grizzlies and Oklahoma City Thunder are knotted at two games apiece for Game 5 in Oklahoma City.

There will also be a Game 5 played between the Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Clippers, whose owner was banned for life earlier today. There might be some media interest in the outcome of that game and series, which is tied at two games apiece.
