Mets-Rockies game postponed by snow, doubleheader tomorrow

Not how Coors Field looks today. - USA TODAY Sports

The Mets and Rockies won't play tonight because of snow in Denver.

Tonight's game between the Mets and Rockies in Denver has been postponed because of snow. The teams will play a doubleheader tomorrow — weather permitting, of course — with one game at 3:10 pm EDT and the other at 8:40 pm EDT.

Dillon Gee will start the day game for the Mets, while Terry Collins is debating whether to use Aaron Laffey or Jeremy Hefner for the nightcap. Matt Harvey will still pitch on Friday at Citi Field, regardless of who pitches in Colorado. The forecast in Denver doesn't look fantastic tomorrow, though, so there's no guarantee that the Mets and Rockies will be able to play even one game.

If the teams aren't able to play all four schedule games this week, their off days don't match up very well for the rest of the season. One of the few mutual days they share off is August 5, the Monday before the Rockies play a three-game series at Citi Field.
