Colorado at New York

Rockies-Mets rained out, doubleheader Thursday wire reports

NEW YORK -- The game between the Colorado Rockies and New York Mets scheduled for Tuesday night has been postponed because of rain and will be made up Thursday as part of a doubleheader.

The game was called off in Queens shortly after the Yankees scrubbed a scheduled start against the Orioles, one borough over in the Bronx.

Mets lefty Jonathon Niese and New York's beleaguered bullpen were going to face Rockies righty Esmil Rogers.

Instead, the two will face off on Wednesday, pushing New York's R.A. Dickey back to the opener of the traditional doubleheader on Thursday. Chris Capuano will take the ball for the Mets in the nightcap.

Colorado's plans were uncertain. Wednesday's scheduled starter, Jorge De La Rosa, will get an extra day for his injured left ring finger to heal. The Rockies lefty, who had been said to have blister problems, went to see two doctors in New York on Tuesday.

This is Colorado's only visit to New York. Tuesday night's game was to be the second of a four-game series.

Thursday's doubleheader will start at 12:10 p.m. in place of the originally scheduled 1:10 getaway day start.
