FLORIDA AT COLORADO, POSTPONED (1ST GAME, RAIN)

DENVER (Ticker) -- The scheduled doubleheader between the
Florida Marlins and Colorado Rockies was postponed due to rain.

Both games will be made up as a doubleheader on Monday, August
8 at 3:05 p.m. EDT.

Inclement weather forced the postponement of the last two games
of the series. On Wednesday night, the teams sat through a rain
delay of 93 minutes before starting the contest. The Rockies
took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning before it
began snowing heavily and the game was stopped and rescheduled
as part of a doubleheader on Thursday at 3:05 p.m. EDT.

However, the teams did not even take the field Thursday due to
rainy and cold conditions.

The Marlins won the only game in the shortened series, 9-3 on
Tuesday.
