Braves, Rockies series finale rained out - Talking Chop

1 month ago 14

The Atlanta Braves and Colorado Rockies are scheduled to wrap up their series at Truist Park Thursday afternoon but all the rain throughout Wednesday’s game and more Thursday morning will cause a delayed start for Thursday’s game.

The Braves are hoping for a 2:15 p.m. start time but we will pass along updates as they become available.

Due to the rain last night and continued rain this morning, our field crew needs some additional time to prep the playing field for today’s game. We are hoping for a 2:15 projected start time.

Sounds like the status of this game may be up in the air.

Brian Snitker, Bud Black, Alex Anthopoulous and others are currently evaluating the infield with the umpires. The infield got quite saturated last night. We'll soon know whether they have decided whether the field will be playable today.

Sounds like this one is going to be a washout

They are bringing the bags in from the Rockies bullpen. No official word yet. But the infield may be too saturated to play today.

On-deck circles now being taken off the field. Only thing left out there is Blooper.
