Rain, snow force postponement of second game

DENVER -- The second game of the Philadelphia Phillies-Colorado Rockies day-night doubleheader was postponed Wednesday because of snow and rain.

The game never got started and no makeup date was announced. This was the Phillies' only scheduled trip to Denver this season.

The Phillies said they would decide on their flight home how the rainout affects their rotation. The Rockies said right-hander Jhoulys Chacin would pitch as scheduled Thursday night against the Washington Nationals. Right-hander Jason Hammel (groin) was due to come off the 15-day DL to pitch Wednesday's nightcap but now wasn't sure when he'd be activated or when he'd start again.

Although the teams have common off-days later in the season, the game might not be made up if it doesn't matter in the standings.
