The wet weather along the East Coast knocked out power to thousands, broke many tree limbs and postponed the Rockies and Pirates baseball game.
Colorado and Pittsburgh
will now play a double header on Tuesday at PNC Park
. The Rockies
are 8-7 so far this season, coming off a victory over the Brewers
in Milwaukee on Sunday.
Jamie Moyer was going to be the starting pitcher for Monday’s postponed game. He made history last Tuesday, becoming the oldest pitcher to ever win a Major League Baseball game.
Moyer was 49 years and 151 days old, breaking the record from 1932 when Jack Quinn of the Brooklyn Dodgers became the oldest winning pitcher at 49 years and 70 days old.
After an unexpected day off, the Rockies and Pirates hope to resume their three-game series with a double header on Tuesday.
