The second game of a three-game series between the Colorado Rockies and San Francisco Giants at Coors Field could be impacted by weather in the Denver area.

Here is the latest information on the weather situation that could affect the Colorado Rockies and San Francisco Giants

In the final appearance of the regular season for the San Francisco Giants against the Colorado Rockies in the Mile High City, moderate rain that was forecast to move into the Denver area in the late-afternoon time frame did just that, causing the tarp to be put on the field as the Giants were taking batting practice.

Local weather forecasts say that the rain could stick around the Denver metro area through the scheduled Saturday start time of 6:10 p.m. (Mountain time). While the rain was falling at a heavier pace during San Francisco’s batting practice, it did lighten up once the tarp was placed on the field.

Cooler temperatures also moved into the area along with the rain clouds.

On Saturday, Colorado is scheduled to send Ryan Feltner (2-4, 6.39) to the mound against Alex Cobb (4-6, 3.99 ERA) for the Giants.

San Francisco will look to bounce back from a 7-4 loss to the Rockies in the opener of the series on Friday night as Elehuris Montero hit two home runs and Connor Joe added a long ball to support a strong performance from starting pitcher José Ureña.
