The third game of a four-game series between the Orioles and the Cleveland Indians is expected to begin at 8:05 p.m. As of 7:30 p.m., the tarp was still on the field and rain was still falling. A thunderstorm passed through Baltimore at the end of Orioles batting practice around 5 p.m., causing the grounds crew to place the tarp on the field. They removed it after that tarp passed and replaced it as a second band of rain passed through the area. dgallen@baltsun.com twitter.com/danieljtgallen

The clouds didn't exactly part for the Blue Angels, but they lifted just enough Saturday afternoon, the rain stopped, and suddenly three F/A-18 Hornets soared past in tight formation over the southeast edge of the Inner Harbor — the show was on for the Star-Spangled Spectacular. Thousands of people gathered at the Inner Harbor to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the national anthem waited nearly two hours for a glimpse of the team, as the rain sprinkled on and off, clouds lowered and lifted again, and the Blue Angels waited for safe flying conditions.

CHICAGO - The Orioles' game against the Chicago Cubs this afternoon was delayed more than three hours by rain, with the Orioles trailing 4-2 at the end of the second inning. Play resumed at 5:31 local time (6:31 in Baltimore). Two batters before the game was delayed, Cubs left fielder Chris Coghlan drove in three runs with a bases-clearing triple off Bud Norris in the second inning, capping a four-run second inning that has yet to be completed.  The Orioles will make every effort to complete today's game to avoid having to play a doubleheader on a getaway day Sunday.

After a 23-minute rain delay before the Orioles' game Tuesday against the Cincinnati Reds at Camden Yards , another band of storms forced a second delay just two batters into the game. Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton opened the with an infield single on a comebacker that hit off Orioles right-hander Bud Norris . After running through first base, Hamilton collided with first base umpire Mike DiMuro. DiMuro left with Orioles assistant trainer Brian Ebel, and the game continued with three umpires.

If it weren't for the indoor facilities at Camden Yards, right-hander Chris Tillman probably wouldn't have lasted six innings in the Orioles' 1-0 loss to the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday. During a 1-hour, 18-minute rain delay, the second weather-induced break of the game, Tillman pitched a pair of simulated innings indoors, allowing him to obtain a quality start when play resumed. Tillman threw 100 pitches in six innings, and he surrendered just one run despite allowing seven hits and three walks.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Wednesday's 43-minute rain delay was too long to allow starter Jake Arrieta to continue his outing when the game resumed in the sixth inning. Instead, he went to right-hander Tommy Hunter, who struck out the first two batters he faced, then gave up back-to-back solo homers to Daniel Nava and Jarrod Saltalamacchia. “It would have been around 50 minutes before he threw his first pitch,” Showalter said of Arrieta. “I think that was a little too much, especially with the weather and the time of the year.

The torrential downpour that transformed the Camden Yards infield into a muddy slop Monday night made any routine baseball play difficult. But the timing was perfect for the Orioles, who scored two runs through monsoon-like rain in the bottom of the sixth, then held on following a two-hour, 14-minute rain delay for a 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels. With the victory, which ended just 10 minutes before midnight, the Orioles (36-28) snapped a three-game home losing streak to the Angels (27-37)

With three consecutive wins against the Texas Rangers, including Wednesday's come-from-behind, rain-soaked 6-4 victory, an obvious question has arisen. Manny Machado who? OK, maybe it's not really a burning sentiment at this point. But since the Orioles' Platinum Glove third baseman began serving his five-game suspension Monday -- leaving the Orioles roster short one player -- they haven't lost. “It's impressive, but it doesn't surprise me,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said of his club's 3-0 record with 24 players.

Dark clouds and a bit of rain was not enough to stop fans from packing the stands for the fourth and final day of the Pantech Beach Championships in Ocean City, but it was enough to delay the skate bowl final twice due to the rain-slicked surface of the bowl. The skate bowl final was delayed the first time after the first heat. Bucky Lasek took command in the first heat by throwing huge 540s and Mctwists to the delight of the packed stands. Zero Skateboards rider Ben Hatchell of Manassas, Va., was nipping at Lasek's heels using a more technical array of grind tricks.

The Orioles didn't need a game-ending three-run homer Wednesday night to complete their second dramatic comeback victory in three games against the Chicago White Sox. A walk-off wild pitch in the early hours of Thursday morning was enough. Looking like they were about to lose the rubber match of their three-game series against the struggling White Sox, the Orioles rallied again for a 5-4 win Wednesday on a game-clinching wild pitch in the 12th inning of a 4-hour, 3-minute marathon that also included a 1-hour, 9-minute rain delay.

The start of Saturday night's game between the Orioles and Red Sox is currently in a rain delay, and no start time has been set yet.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Tonight's Orioles game against the Texas Rangers is scheduled to start at 8:40 p.m. (Eastern) after a rain delay. The grounds crew has just removed the tarp from the field. Texas will have a pregame ceremony to induct former catcher Ivan Rodriguez into the Rangers Hall of Fame, which will take approximately 30 minutes. Tonight's game was initially scheduled to begin at 8:15, but thunderstorms pelted the area, forcing the Orioles to cut batting practice short.

It wasn't exactly how Matt Wieters envisioned the first game-ending home run of his big league career. With barely 100 people in the stands after a long late-game rain delay, Wieters launched the first pitch he saw from Russ Springer into the left-field seats. His two-run, ninth-inning homer pushed the Orioles to a 4-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays before what remained of an announced 10,548 at wet Camden Yards. When the game finally ended, there were seemingly as many Orioles at home plate to greet and pound on Wieters as there were fans in the crowd.

PHILADELPHIA -- Normally, it's no big deal when a baseball game begins at 1:30.Unless, of course, it's 1:30 a.m.Until real early yesterday morning, you see, no major-league team in anyone's memory had started a baseball game at that late (early) hour.But then along came those history-making 1993 Phillies.According to the Elias Sports Bureau, when the Phillies and Padres started the second game of their long night's doubleheader journey into dawn at 1:28 a.m. yesterday, they almost certainly set a record for the latest a major-league game had started.

During the course of a long baseball season, there are always a few games that stand out for their wild, unpredictable nature. The Orioles' 7-3 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Thursday evening qualifies - but only because of one ridiculously weird inning that included an out that wasn't, a safe base runner who jogged off the field, and the end of Manny Machado's consecutive-innings streak with an ejection by an umpire making his big league...
