Bucs, Rox Washed Out; DH Wednesday

Tonight's 7:05 Pirates-Rockies game at PNC Park has been postponed due to the nasty weather. The game will be made up as part of a DH on Wednesday, starting at 12:35. The second game will follow the first by 1/2 hour. It was easier to play two Wednesday than use up the Thursday travel day.

Root Sports was already scheduled to show the 12:35 game Wednesday; no word on whether they'll carry the second game yet.

The Bucco pitchers for the series against Colorado will be Kevin Correia (Tuesday), James McDonald (Wednesday #1) and Charlie Morton (Wednesday # 2). The Rockies' starters slated for the set are LHP Jamie Moyer followed by righties Juan Nacasio and Jhoulys Chacin.

The Rox are 8-7, and just took 2 out-of-three from the Brewers at Milwaukee. The Pirates are 6-9, and just lost 2 out-of-three to St. Louis here.

The Pirates are off Thursday, and then travel to Atlanta for a four game series and St. Louis for a three match set.
