Phillies-Rockies Postpone Game Three

Game Three of the Philadelphia Phillies-Colorado Rockies playoff on Saturday night has been postponed because of cold, snowy weather.

Major League Baseball rescheduled the game for Sunday night at 10:07 p.m. ET, and Game Four was pushed back to Monday. Game Five, if necessary, will be played as scheduled on Tuesday in Philadelphia, without a day off for travel.

The NL Division Series is tied at one game each.

A cold front moved into Denver overnight, dropping temperatures into the teens with record lows for the date. Coors Field was covered with a thin layer of snow and ice Saturday morning and flurries were expected to continue through the night.

Who does this postponement favor? Clearly the Phillies. Instead of using either JA Happ or Joe Blanton in Game Four, Charlie Manuel can now use Cliff Lee on full rest in Game Four.

Manuel can come back with Cole Hamels on full rest for Game Five as well.
