Thursday’s series finale between the Toronto Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles has been postponed due to rain.

The game will be made up as part of a double-header on Saturday, Sept. 11.

The postponement means Thursday’s scheduled Blue Jays starter Alek Manoah will likely take the mound on Friday night for the first game of another important series against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Toronto will enter Friday’s action 5.5 games back of Tampa for second place in the AL East and 3.5 back of the Oakland Athletics for the second wild-card spot.

First pitch between the Blue Jays and Rays is set for 7:10 p.m. ET/4:10 p.m. PT Friday on Sportsnet and SN Now.
