The scheduled Friday night game between the Colorado Rockies and Pittsburgh Pirates was postponed because of inclement weather.

The game was rescheduled at PNC Park for Saturday as part of a split doubleheader, with the first game to start at 12:05 p.m. ET and Game 2 tabbed for 4:05 p.m..

It will mark the Rockies’ fifth twin bill of the season already. That includes their previous action on Thursday, a rescheduled doubleheader sweep suffered at the hands of the New York Mets after Colorado split their first three in 2021.
