It looks like it's supposed to pour later tonight. Does it get rained out entirely? Do they play through the rain? Is it moved to Wednesday night?
So many questions, and no answers.

Mike Pelfrey is amazing.
He won his sixth straight start last night, throwing eight innings and only allowing six hits. He induced 12 ground balls, which went for 15 outs with the help of three double plays turned behind him. Only four of his outs came from fly balls.
It seemed every time Pelfrey would allow a hit, he'd follow it up with a double play ball. In the first, he allowed a lead off single, and the got the very next batter to ground into a 6-4-3 double play. In the fourth with runners on first and third, he got an inning ending double play, third to second, to first. And in the fifth, he allowed another lead off single, and again on the very next batter got a ground ball to short to start a double play.

Nick Evans should only play against the Rockies.
In his career, Evans is a sparkling 5-9, with three doubles, three RBI, and two runs scored. Against everyone else, he's 2-21, driving in no runs and scoring only twice.
