The Washington Nationals will resume Sunday’s suspended game with the Baltimore Orioles on Friday at 5:05 p.m. in Baltimore before a previously scheduled game between the Beltway rivals.

The game will pick up where it left off in the sixth inning, when a snafu with the tarp at Nationals Park meant a rainstorm soaked the field and made it unsuitable to continue playing.

The Orioles led 5-2 when the game was suspended.

Friday’s game will follow 45 minutes after the completion of the earlier game. It will be a full nine-inning game, not shortened to seven the way other doubleheaders will be treated for the rest of the year.

It marks the latest interruption to the Nationals’ schedule in an already wacky, 60-game season. The Nationals’ three-game series with the Miami Marlins that was postponed in late July and early August will be made up on three separate days — Aug. 22, Sept. 18 and Sept. 20 — all seven-inning games on dates that Washington and Miami were already scheduled to meet.
