Rockies series opener against Giants postponed due to inclement weather

The Rockies’ series opener against the Giants on Thursday at Coors Field is postponed due to inclement weather.

Colorado, fresh off a series win over the Cubs, was scheduled to take on San Francisco at 6:40 p.m., but there is a high chance of rain in Denver shortly before that and throughout the evening.

Thursday’s game will now be made up as the first game of a split doubleheader on Saturday. The game will be at 12:10 p.m. that day followed by the regularly scheduled game against the Giants at 6:40. Tickets are required for both games.

Tickets for Thursday’s game are valid for Saturday’s 12:10 game, and the scheduled Bark in the Park event has been moved to that game. Gates will open at 10:30 a.m. Saturday.

Friday’s pitching matchup

Giants RHP Logan Webb (10-12, 3.40 ERA) at Rockies RHP Chase Anderson (0-5, 6.49)

6:40 p.m. Friday, Coors Field

TV: AT&T SportsNet

Radio: 850 AM/94.1 FM

Webb dominated in last Saturday’s outing against the Rockies in San Francisco, tossing six shutout innings while allowing just three hits and a walk in the Giants’ 9-1 win. It will be up to Anderson to play stopper against the G-Men for the little brother Rockies, who have lost eight of nine to San Francisco this year and are 6-22 against the orange-and-black dating back to last season. Anderson got hit around in last weekend’s matchup opposite Webb, yielding six runs in three-plus innings. He’s given up three bombs across his last two outings. Out of his last 10 starts, only one of them has been quality. Both starters were scheduled to go Thursday before the game got called around 3:45 p.m.
