The Colorado Rockies and Los Angeles Dodgers were rained out Tuesday night at Coors Field when a sudden downpour delayed first pitch moments before the 5:40 p.m. PT start time. After more than two hours of steady rain, the game was postponed and scheduled as part of a split doubleheader for Wednesday.
The probables for tomorrow’s twinbill remain the same, with Ross Stripling taking the ball in Game 1 of the doubleheader, and Rich Hill starting the night game. Stripling was previously scheduled to start the Wednesday afternoon affair.
He’ll be opposed by Tyler Anderson, with the Rockies electing to push Jeff Hoffman back to the game that will follow.
Anderson was slated to face the Dodgers on Tuesday night but didn’t throw a pitch aside from warming up in the bullpen and a few tosses on the mound.
The left-hander allowed allowed two runs on six hits, including one home run, over seven innings to earn a win when he faced the Dodgers at Coors Field on Aug. 3. Hoffman, a rookie, has yet to face the Dodgers in his career and will make just his third start.
Similarly, Stripling has yet to face Colorado during his rookie season. Hill is 0-2 lifetime against the Rockies, with an 8.80 ERA in three starts. All of his outings came at Coors Field, though they were from 2006-08.
Both clubs will have the option to call up a 26th man for Wednesday’s doubleheader. The selected player must already be on the 40-man roster.
