(Reuters) - The Baltimore Orioles said Wednesday's home game against the Chicago White Sox will be played but it will be closed to the public, as unrest in the city continues following the death of a man in police custody.

The Orioles said weekend games scheduled for Baltimore against the Tampa Bay Rays instead will be played in St. Petersburg, Florida. Games that were to have been played on Monday and Tuesday against the White Sox were postponed and will be made up on May 28, the Orioles said.
