The first game of the Giants-Rockies series, scheduled for Thursday, has been postponed due to adverse weather conditions. It has been rescheduled to take place as part of a doubleheader on Saturday, with the first game set to start at 11:10 a.m. PT. The originally planned nightcap will go ahead as scheduled, with a first pitch at 5:10 p.m. PT.
The Giants, riding an impressive eight-game winning streak at Coors Field, are currently in the midst of a heated competition for a National League wild-card spot. As of Thursday, they are just half a game behind the Arizona Diamondbacks, who hold the third and final wild-card position. The Giants, along with the Cincinnati Reds and Miami Marlins, all sit within one game of the Diamondbacks. All three teams will have a day off on Thursday while keeping an eye on the Diamondbacks as they complete a four-game series against the New York Mets.
Coors Field has proven to be a favorable venue for the Giants in recent years. They haven’t suffered a defeat there since August 20 of the previous year and boast a remarkable 17-5 record in Denver since the start of the 2021 season. The Giants have already swept the Rockies in a three-game series on the road back in June and repeated the feat at Oracle Park last weekend.
The final series of the 2023 MLB season between San Francisco and Colorado will commence at 5:10 p.m. PT on Friday. Don’t forget to catch “Giants Postgame Live” on NBC Sports Bay Area at 4:30 p.m.
