Updated record: 2015 Rockies home wins, 4; 2015 rainouts at Coors Field, 4½. Weather looks to make it a 1½ game lead tomorrow.

The Rockies tilt against the Dodgers has been postponed, according to the Rockies.

No makeup date has been announced. That means that there is no scheduled double-header tomorrow. The likely reason is that the forecast calls for snow, and the Dodgers have to travel. While the Rockies have Monday off, the Dodgers are set to take on the Marlins in Los Angeles on Monday night. The most likely scenario is that the game will be made up as part of a doubleheader when the Dodgers come back to town, either in early June or late September.

Since returning to Denver for a six game homestead this past Monday, the Rockies have been postponed three times, played a double header, and played a five inning game. The team was in a funk before the weather got in the way of baseball, but all of this time off can't be good for a player's rhythm.

As of now, it looks like today's starters, Jorge De La Rosa and Clayton Kershaw, will pitch tomorrow's game. The game is scheduled to begin at 2:10 MT.
