Temp at gametime could set postseason record

DENVER (AP) - The Philadelphia Phillies and Colorado Rockies were bundled up for batting practice Sunday night, wearing stocking caps, gloves and thick hooded sweat shirts to insulate against the biting cold.

The forecast for Game 3 of their NL playoff series called for a temperature of 33 at first pitch, which would break the record for the coldest postseason game.

That distinction, for now, belongs to Cleveland and Florida, who played Game 4 of the 1997 World Series in 35-degree weather.

It could be worse - at least the snow flurries and icy mist have cleared out.

The snowstorm that blew through the Mile High City on Saturday brought bone-chilling temperatures and led to the Phillies and Rockies getting postponed. The series is tied at one game each.
