BALTIMORE (AP) — The Orioles will reimburse hourly employees at Camden Yards who lost wages during the week of April 27 after riots broke out in Baltimore following the funeral of Freddie Gray.

The Orioles postponed two games against the White Sox because of the unrest, and those games will be made up as part of doubleheader May 28. The series finale against Chicago was played at Camden Yards in what is believed to be the first Major League Baseball game played in front of no fans.

A three-game series against the Rays from May 1-3 was relocated from Camden Yards to Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida.
