BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Orioles announced Tuesday afternoon that Wednesday's game against the Chicago White Sox will begin at 2:05 ET and be "closed to the public."

The team said fans with tickets to the game dated April 29 can exchange their tickets for any remaining home games on a "dollar for dollar" basis.

The postponed Orioles and White Sox games from  April 27 and 28 will be made up as part of a single-admission doubleheader on May 28, at 4:05 pm ET.

The Orioles are also relocating its upcoming home series against the Tampa Bay Rays to Tropicana Field, home of the Rays.

The  Orioles earlier Tuesday postponed a second straight game against the Chicago White Sox after a night of rioting near Camden Yards.

The team says it made the decision Tuesday after consulting with Major League Baseball, and state and local officials. A makeup date was not announced.

Public schools were shut down Tuesday, and Baltimore's mayor imposed a 10 p.m.-to-5 a.m. curfew.

Monday's game was postponed after riots that followed the funeral of Freddie Gray, who died April 19 of spinal cord and other injuries sustained while in police custody.

The White Sox were in town for a three-game series that had been slated to start Monday. They were not scheduled to return this season.
