The Rockies will play 2 7-inning games at 12:20 and 4:30 p.m. MT

Good news for Rockies fans. This series will feature fewer innings and less bullpen.

Due to intense rain and lightning on Tuesday, the Rockies and Cubs game has been postponed. The two teams will play a doubleheader on Wednesday with two seven-inning games at 12:20 and 4:30 p.m.

Germán Márquez (11-9, 3.80 ERA, 1.17 WHIP) was set to start for the Rockies on Thursday night and was going to face off against lefty Justin Steele (2-2, 3.22 ERA, 1.25 WHIP). Both will presumably pitch on Wednesday, as well as Wednesday’s original planned starters - Austin Gomber (9-7, 4.15 ERA) and Zach Davies (6-10, 5.04 ERA).
