Rockies-Reds game postponed due to water main break outside Coors Field

Sunday August 17th, 2014

The Rockies-Reds game scheduled for Saturday night was postponed due to a water main break outside Coors Field in Denver, Colorado. 

The teams split the first two games of the series with the Rockies winning the first on Thursday and losing the second on Friday.

The decision to postpone Saturday night's game came at the request of the Denver Office of Emergency Management after the water to the ballpark was cut off, effectively making the restrooms and concession stands inoperable. The game has been rescheduled for Sunday as part of a double-header.

It will be the second game on Sunday and will start at 7:10 p.m. -- assuming the bathrooms are working again.
