5/12/2004

DENVER (Ticker) -- The game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and
Colorado Rockies was postponed due to rain.

With more rain and snow in the forecast, team officials wasted
little time postponing the second game of the three-game series.
It will be made up Thursday as part of a doubleheader, which
begins at 3:05 p.m. EDT.

Pittsburgh will send Kris Benson to the mound in Game One, while
Oliver Perez starts Game Two.

Shawn Estes takes the mound for the Rockies in the opener and
Jason Jennings will get the call in the nightcap.
