Athletics-Orioles game postponed, to be played as split DH

BY foxsports • May 6, 2016

BALTIMORE (AP) Friday night's game between the Baltimore Orioles and Oakland Athletics has been postponed by rain.

The game will be made up as part of a split doubleheader on Saturday. The makeup will be played at 1:05 p.m., followed by the regularly scheduled 7:05 p.m. game.

This is Oakland's only visit to Baltimore this season.

The rainout will give Oakland outfielder Coco Crisp an additional day to recover from a heel injury that kept him out of Wednesday's game against Seattle.

A's manager Bob Melvin said before the game: ''What I'm getting from the training room is that he feels that much better today and will be available off the bench.''

Oakland is 13-16 after being swept by the Mariners in a three-game series at home.

The Orioles are 16-11 after taking two of three from the New York Yankees.
