Rockies Get Snowed Out for the Second Straight Monday

USA TODAY Sports

A spring snowstorm has postponed the first game of a three game series between the Braves and Rockies. It's currently scheduled to be made up tomorrow as part of a double header.

The battle for the best record in baseball will not be played tonight as yet another spring snowstorm has invaded Denver. Shortly before 3:30 p.m. local time, the Rockies made the official announcement.

Snow has already started falling in the downtown area and a Winter Weather Advisory is in effect through 6:00 a.m. tomorrow.

For those who had tickets for tonight's contest...

The Braves will counter with Mike Minor (2-1, 0.95 ERA) and Julio Teheran (0-0, 7.31 ERA)

If both games are played tomorrow, it could actually cause a bit a a problem for the Rockies later in the week. Their rotation is already down a man with Jhoulys Chacin hitting the DL and with no off days on the schedule until May 2nd, they could have to find two new starters by the weekend. One on Wednesday to fill Chacin's place, and another on Saturday if they don't want Garland or Francis starting on short rest in Arizona.

As it stands right now, Drew Pomeranz could start Wednesday on normal rest and Tyler Chatwood could start Saturday on normal rest, but so far no official announcement has been made.

Tonight's Sky Sox game against the Las Vegas 51s has also been postponed so Tyler Chatwood is no longer in line to pitch Saturday on four days rest.
