It’s going to be a GREAT Mother’s Day Weekend for baseball at Coors Field! The Rockies look to take the series from the division rival LA Dodgers Saturday and Sunday, maintaining their hold atop the NL West. If the boys are able to extend their winning streak this weekend, the Rockies could also keep pace with the Houston Astros for MLB’s best record. The suspense is building, but will the weather cooperate?
Saturday – First Pitch 8:10pm MDT
Temperatures will climb into the low to mid 80s Saturday afternoon, with game-time temperatures a comfortable 75 degrees. Expect mainly clear skies and pleasant conditions throughout the game, with light SE winds at 5-10mph. You may want a light jacket, as temperatures will fall into the low 60s by the 7th inning.
Sunday – First Pitch 3:10pm MDT
Pitcher Antionio Senzatela goes for his 6th win on Sunday, hoping to keep pace as one of the league’s top right-handers this season. Afternoon temperatures will be a little cooler, with highs topping out in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees. Expect partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies throughout the game, keeping sunscreen and sunglasses on the list for fans. There is a slight chance for a stray afternoon shower or thunderstorm, but it looks like we’ll stay generally dry. Still, pack that rain jacket along just in case.
