Yankees vs. Orioles ALDS Rain Delay: Game 1 will be played Sunday night

The New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles were scheduled to get underway at 6 p.m. ET for Game 1 of the 2012 ALDS, but rain has delayed the first pitch. The game will happen on Sunday night, with the start expected to come between 8 and 9 p.m. ET, according to CBS Eye On Baseball.

Rain is still coming down in Baltimore, but the National Weather Service predicts the showers to end around 8 p.m. There will be just a 10 percent chance of precipitation throughout the rest of Sunday night.

When the rain finally stops, the Orioles will be sending Jason Hammel to the mound. The Yankees counter with their ace, left-hander CC Sabathia.

The two teams battled for the division title for the final month of the season, with the Yankees clinching the AL East on the final day and securing home field advantage. That means the first two games are scheduled for Baltimore, with the rest of the series coming in New York.
