BALTIMORE — With the effects of Hurricane Irene bearing down on the Mid-Atlantic region this weekend, Saturday’s scheduled day-night doubleheader between the Orioles and Yankees has been postponed.

Saturday’s 7:05 p.m. game will be played as part of a day-night doubleheader at 7:35 p.m. on Sunday, with Sunday’s already-scheduled afternoon game taking place at 1:35 p.m.

Saturday’s 1:05 p.m. game will be made up on Sept. 8 at a time that will be announced at a later date. This marks the second rescheduling of a game originally scheduled for April 22, which was also postponed due to rain. Tickets dated Aug. 27 at 1:05 p.m. or April 22 will be accepted only for the game on Sept. 8. No exchange is necessary and fans should bring their original tickets to the ballpark gates for admission.

Tickets dated Aug. 27 at 7:05 p.m. will only be accepted at the 7:35 p.m. game on Sunday. No exchange is necessary and fans should bring their original tickets to the ballpark gates for admission.

Fans unable to attend the rescheduled games this weekend may exchange their tickets for any remaining game during the 2011 season, subject to availability, and must be completed by Sept. 28.

The announcement comes after Yankees center fielder and player representative Curtis Granderson issued a statement expressing frustration toward the Orioles and Major League Baseball regarding their handling of the impending effect of Hurricane Irene that’s caused various sporting events to be postponed this weekend.

“Given the advance notice and the fact that other teams have adjusted their schedules ahead of time, we are perplexed at the current options we are being presented with in regards to making up any games postponed due to Hurricane Irene,” Granderson said prior to Friday’s game. “The proposition to take away our only full off day in the final month of the season is not an option, even though the Orioles’ front office and the Commissioner’s office think this is an adequate solution. It’s a shame that the decision has now come down to possibly having to play four games in two days or having to come back to Baltimore for another makeup game.”
