The Giants and Rockies were scheduled to start a series at Coors Field on Monday, but today’s game has been postponed. The current forecast calls for a roughly 60% chance of rain throughout the evening, so they have rescheduled the game as part of a doubleheader on Tuesday. The first game will occur at 5:40 p.m. ET, while the second game is currently scheduled for 9:10 p.m. ET. Per the MLB’s new rules on doubleheaders, both contests will be seven innings instead of the usual nine.
Unfortunately, we don’t really know who is going to be on the mound for those contests. Alex Wood will take the ball in one of those games for the Giants, but their other starter is unknown. That’s still more information currently available for the Rockies, who haven’t announced a starter for either contest.
The Giants surprisingly find themselves at the top of the NL West standings through the season’s first 25 games. That said, they have two powerhouses chasing them in the Dodgers and Padres, and they’re still listed at +2500 to win the division on FanDuel Sportsbook.
