Rockies vs. Reds – Game Recap – September 3, 2022

CINCINNATI — The game between the Colorado Rockies and the Cincinnati Reds scheduled for Saturday night has been postponed after a 3 hour and 45 minute wait.

The game never started and will be made up as part of a traditional doubleheader on Sunday.

A concert by country music star Cole Swindell, originally scheduled to be on the field after the game, took place during the delay in a covered area between the ballpark and the adjacent indoor arena. The concert was shown on the baseball video boards.

Both scheduled starting pitchers, Colorado’s Germán Márquez (7-10, 4.97 ERA) and Cincinnati’s Nick Lodolo (3-5, 4.30), began warming up in anticipation of a 9:50 p.m. start before the rain picked up and the field covered again.

Márquez and Lodolo are scheduled to start in Sunday’s opener. Rockies righty José Ureña (3-5, 5.80) and Reds righty Chase Anderson (0-2, 27.00) are scheduled to start the nightcap.

Colorado last went to the NL West on Saturday. The Rockies have lost seven of their last nine games.

The Reds’ second baseman Jonathan India, last season’s NL Rookie of the Year, is on a career-best winning streak of 15 games (21 of 59, .356), the longest active streak in the major leagues.
