Yankees vs. Orioles, 2012 ALDS: Rain in Baltimore delays Game 1 start time

Game 1 of the 2012 ALDS matchup between the New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles has been delayed by rain.

The National Weather Service predicts occasional rain in the Baltimore area until 8:15 p.m. ET. The game was initially scheduled to start at 6 p.m. before showers came. When the game does get going, Jason Hammel gets the call for the Orioles against CC Sabathia of the Yankees.

The Orioles have taken four of the last seven meetings between the they spent much of the stretch run battling the Yankees for the division title. New York eventually prevailed, clinching on the last day of the regular season. That allowed the Yankees to have home field advantage for the series, as the first two games will be played in Baltimore before the ALDS moves to New York for Game 3. Games 4 and 5 will also be at Yankee Stadium if necessary.
