(Newser) – The Baltimore Orioles and Chicago White Sox were tied at 3 when play was suspended after 11 innings Monday because of rain. The game will resume later this season, but no date was immediately announced. All the statistics from Monday count. Juan Uribe hit a solo homer in the 11th off Baltimore closer George Sherrill, his first blown save in 10 chances this year.

A daylong rain had soaked the muddy infield with puddles, so umpires called for the tarp after the inning and moments later came an announcement that the game was suspended. The start was delayed 2 hours, 6 minutes by rain and the gametime temperature was only 38 degrees with wind blowing at 12 mph.
