April 23, 2010 – Florida Marlins at Colorado Rockies

On April 23, 2010, the Florida Marlins and Colorado Rockies experienced a “snow-out” at Coors Field (again, go figure.) Technically, Major League Baseball cited a “mix of rain and snow” for the cancellation, but regardless it was too cold and icy for a baseball game to be played.

The game was made up the next day as the first part of a doubleheader in windy, 54 degree weather. The Marlins would beat the Rockies 4-1, with good old Ricky Nolasco pitching eight innings of one-run ball, striking out nine and earning the win. Dan Uggla and Brett Carroll both homered for the Marlins, and Leo Nunez/Juan Carlos Oviedo saved his fourth game of the season.

And Jorge Cantu – remember him? – extended his hitting streak to a modest 21 games that day.

Colorado won the second game that evening, evening the series at a game a piece before clinching the series the next day with a 8-4 win.
