No baseball in Mudville, or in Pittsburgh tonight.

With rain prominent in the Pittsburgh area today, the Rockies-Pirates series opener has been postponed this evening.

The team announced that the game will be made up tomorrow at 12:05 p.m. EST with the second game starting at 4:05 p.m. EST. Both games will only last seven innings.

According to Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Pirates will flip the order of their starters, putting JT Brubaker on the mound for Game 1 against Jon Gray and Mitch Keller on the mound against Austin Gomber for Game 2.

The Pirates were hoping to snap their season-high six-game losing streak this evening against the Rockies, but it looks like the team will have to wait until tomorrow.

Ironically enough, the Rockies are coming off of a doubleheader Thursday against the Mets, where the team went 0-2.

The Pirates will participate in their second doubleheader of the season Saturday. The team split two games with the Tigers on April 21 in Detroit.

See you tomorrow for the double dip!
