Phils and Rox rained out

DENVER (AP) - Even with a cold, steady rain drenching Coors Field and puddles overtaking the tarp, the last thing the Colorado Rockies and Philadelphia Phillies wanted was a night off.

Now they're scheduled for a day-night doubleheader Wednesday -- when the forecast calls for snow -- to make up for Tuesday's rainout.

The pitching matchups will remain the same with Phillies ace Roy Halladay (6-1) making his first start in his native Colorado since high school in the 1:10 p.m. MDT opener.

He'll face Rockies right-hander Aaron Cook (1-3).

In the 6:40 p.m. MDT nightcap, it'll be Jamie Moyer (4-2) for Philadelphia facing Jason Hammel (0-2), who will be activated from the 15-day disabled list.

Hammel landed on the DL with a strained right groin last month, stemming from a mechanical flaw in his delivery.
