You didn't think we'd get through the entire year without at least one rain out, did you?

The strong storm line coming through the state of Florida Thursday forced the cancellation of at least one game, as the Baltimore Orioles decided to cancel their contest with the Tampa Bay Rays at Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota.

Tampa Bay had already decided to scratch their entire pitching lineup, having all of their major-league pitchers, including left-hander David Price, throw a simulated game in Port Charlotte.

The Rays will next play Friday in Dunedin against the Toronto Blue Jays.  Alex Cobb will get the start against Drew Hutchinson at 1:05.

Hear from manager Joe Maddon and David Price below!
