The final four-game of a four-game series between the Colorado Rockies and San Francisco Giants has been delayed by weather in the Denver area.
San Francisco posted a 4-3 victory on Wednesday night, snapping a four-game winning streak for the Colorado Rockies, including victories in the first two games of the series in downtown Denver.
In Thursday’s matinee, former Rockies hurler Tyler Anderson (0-1, 3.68 ERA) is scheduled to take the mound in his former home park, squaring off against former teammate Kyle Freeland (2-0, 1.50 ERA). However, lightning in the downtown area is delaying the start of the contest.

Colorado slugger Nolan Arenado has once again feasted on San Francisco pitching during the first three games of the series. The All-Star third baseman has homered in three consecutive games (all against San Francisco). That is his ninth career home run streak of three or more games. It also gave him 31 career round-trippers against the Giants. That’s the most of any Rockies player in franchise history.
Additionally, his 104 career RBI against the Giants are the most by any active Major Leaguer against a single team in a span dating back to 2013, the year that Arenado made his MLB debut.
Can Arenado keep the streak going on Thursday when the game begins? Arenado has homered in at least four consecutive games twice in his career, including in a franchise-record six straight games in September of 2015.
No one was happier than Arenado to see the Giants come into town. Entering this series, he had been 7-for-31 (.226) with no extra-base hits through his first eight games.
