The Baltimore Orioles postponed Monday night’s game against the Chicago White Sox amid riots and looting following the funeral of Freddie Gray.

New MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred, who was visiting Oriole Park at Camden Yards on Monday, suggested the Orioles could play games at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., the Baltimore Sun reported.

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake announced a weeklong, citywide curfew of 10 p.m. beginning Tuesday. The Orioles are scheduled to host the White Sox on Tuesday night and Wednesday night, and then the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday night, Saturday night and Sunday afternoon.
