DENVER >> After a rain delay of more than two hours, tonight’s game between the Dodgers and Colorado Rockies was postponed until tomorrow. The two teams will play a split doubleheader at 12:10 p.m. and 5:10 p.m. Pacific Time.

Tickets for tonight’s game will be good for admission to the second game tomorrow.

Dodgers right-hander Ross Stripling will oppose Rockies left-hander Tyler Anderson in Game 1. Left-hander Rich Hill, who was scheduled to start Tuesday’s game, will oppose Rockies right-hander Jeff Hoffman in Game 2.

Both teams will have a 26th player, a pitcher, available for the second game under MLB rules. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said the team hasn’t decided who will be added to the roster.
