Colorado Rockies-New York Mets Game Rescheduled for June 27

The New York Mets will return to Coors Field to play the Colorado Rockies on June 27, Major League Baseball announced on Thursday.

The game will make up for Wednesday’s game which was postponed because of snow.

The Mets, which were swept by the Rockies in what turned out to be a three-game series, will add one day to a nine-game road trip that will pit them against the Atlanta Braves, Philadelphia Phillies and Chicago White Sox. With the team already flying from New York to Atlanta to Philadelphia (who the heck made up this schedule?), ending the trip by going from Chicago to Denver to New York shouldn’t be much worse.

One thing that will put the Mets at a disadvantage is the fact that their June 26 game in Chicago will be a night game.

The Rockies will be coming home after a nine-game trip that will feature games against the Toronto Blue Jays, Washington Nationals and Boston Red Sox. Their final game in Boston is scheduled to start at 4:05 (Eastern), so they should get a head start over the Mets on the trip to Colorado.

The make up game against the Mets will signal the start of a homestand in which the Rockies will play the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Rockies swept the Mets by outscoring them, 28-15, in the just-completed series. They will host the Arizona Diamondbacks for three games beginning Friday, and end the homestand with a three-game set against the Braves.
