Rays-Orioles game postponed by rain

BALTIMORE, MD (WFLA) -

Tuesday's night game between the Tampa Bay Rays and Baltimore Orioles has been postponed by rain.

A steady downpour and low temperatures were predicted for much of the night.

No makeup date was immediately announced. Baltimore won the opener of the three-game set 7-1 on Monday, and the series was scheduled to conclude Wednesday afternoon.

Tampa Bay announced Tuesday that left-hander Matt Moore will be lost for the season after opting to undergo elbow-ligament replacement surgery. In addition, reliever Brandon Gomes was slated to start on the mound in place of Jake Odorizzi, who was sent back to the team hotel Monday with an illness.

Odorizzi will pitch Wednesday, manager John Maddon said.

The Orioles, meanwhile, were preparing to play without center fielder Adam Jones, who was sent home with flu-like symptoms. Reliever Evan Meek was sent home with the same bug.
