Giants Vs. Rockies: Wet Weather Threatens Series Finale

The Colorado Rockies and San Francisco Giants have split the first two games of their three game series at Coors Field, but plenty of rain threatens the series finale on Wednesday evening.

According to the National Weather Service, weather conditions are expected to remain wet and unchanged for most of Wednesday, with potential for a slight break in cloud cover occurring around 7:00 pm MT, approximately 30 minutes after the scheduled first pitch of 6:40 p.m. MT.

The scheduled starters features a matchup of veteran lefties. The Giants' Tim Lincecum (8-14, 5.11) would face off against Colorado's Jeff Francis (5-4, 5.38).

If weather prevents the game from commencing, the game would likely be moved to Thursday, September 13. Both teams have a scheduled travel day that could be replaced with a make-up game instead. This is the last time that San Francisco visits Coors Field for the season, so there is plenty of incentive to finish the series this week.
