NEW YORK (AP) - 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.
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.
