DENVER (AP) -- The Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks have been postponed by a mix of rain and snow after playing in an unseasonably warm 84 degrees the day before.

Temperatures dipped from the high 60s early Sunday into the 30s as a snowstorm swept over the Rocky Mountains. First rain and then snow pelted Coors Field in Denver an hour before the scheduled
start, forcing the grounds crew to roll out the tarp.

The teams said a makeup date would be determined at a later time.

The logical choice would be May 23, when both teams have a mutual off day prior to a three-game series against each other at Coors Field.
