For the second time this year, the Baltimore Orioles have been involved in a suspended game. In tonight's game at Camden Yards against the Blue Jays, Toronto took a 2-1 lead in the top of the sixth on an RBI single by Lyle Overbay. But the inning was still going on with the Blue Jays at bat and Overbay on third with two outs when heavy rains hit.
The umpires ruled the game suspended under Rule 4.12 (a) (5) that states "A game shall become a suspended game that must be completed at a future date if the game is terminated for (w)eather, if a regulation game is called while an inning is in progress and
before the inning is completed, and the visiting team has scored one or more
runs to take the lead, and the home team has not retaken the lead;
The game is scheduled to restart Thursday morning at 9:05 am PT, prior to the start of the regularly scheduled 9:35 am game. Which will likely start later.
The Orioles and White Sox will complete their suspended game from April 23 on August 25, although that game will be finished up in Chicago, not Baltimore.
After the game, the Blue Jays sent pitcher Jesse Litsch to the minors and recalled David Purcey, whom I believe would be eligible to pitch in the final few innings of the suspended game.
The rule on suspsended games that this game falls under is designed to prevent shenanigans like what was described here.
