The Baltimore Orioles’ schedule was partially postponed during the last week of April due to citizens protesting in Baltimore City following death of Freddie Gray while in police custody.

After postponing games on April 27 and 28, the Orioles played and won their remaining game against the Chicago White Sox on April 29. But in a first for Major League Baseball, the game was played in an empty Camden Yards stadium because no fans were allowed entry because of the rioting threat in the city. The O’s went on to split two games with the Rays on May 1 and 2 in Tampa, Fla. Baltimore’s overall record as of May 2 stood at 11-11.

April 29: Orioles Win Against Chicago Amid Baltimore Rioting

After Games One and Two were postponed, the Orioles defeated the Chicago White Sox, 8-2, in Game Three on April 29 at Camden Yards. However, the Orioles had to play in an empty stadium as baseball officials decided to close the stadium to the public out of fear of the safety of fans due to unrest across the city. The O’s didn’t seem to let the empty stadium bother them as they won the game in convincing fashion. Ubaldo Jimmenez got the start and lasted seven full innings, striking out six batters while allowing just three hits and two runs. Chris Davis and Manny Machado both went the yard with home runs.

Baltimore then traveled to Tampa, Fla. to take on the Rays in a three-game series originally scheduled to take place in Baltimore but moved to Tampa because of the uncertainty of the protesting in Baltimore. The Orioles struggled at the plate in Game One on May 1 falling 2-0, producing just four hits. Starter Chris Tillman went seven innings in this game, striking out seven batters. But he gave up two earned runs, all Tampa needed to win.

The Orioles returned the favor in Game Two on May 2, shutting out the Rays, 4-0. Starter Miguel Gonzalez pitched a beautiful game, allowing just four hits and no runs while collecting six strikeouts. Steve Pearce led Baltimore with two RBIs, while Davis added another. Caleb Joseph nailed a home run to seal the victory.

Next: Baltimore will travel to New York to take on the Mets in a quick two-game series on May 5 and 6, followed by a four-game series against the Yankees from May 7 to 10.
