After games Monday and Tuesday against the Chicago White Sox were postponed as the city of Baltimore continues to deal with protests and violence, the Orioles announced changes to their upcoming schedule on Tuesday afternoon.

Baltimore's game Wednesday against Chicago will begin at 2:05 p.m. ET instead of the orginally scheduled 7:05 p.m. start time and will be closed to the public. Also, the two postponed games will be played as part of a straight doubleheader on May 28.

Additionally, the Orioles moved their three-game home series against the Rays for this upcoming weekend to Tropicana Field. Baltimore will serve as the home team.

Riots erupted in the city following the Monday funeral of Freddie Gray, who was arrested April 12 and later died after suffering a severe spinal injury.

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan declared a state of emergency at the request of the city, activating the National Guard to help address the growing violence. The city of Baltimore has also enacted a 10 p.m. ET curfew.
