Weather was a constant factor. The infield remained covered by a tarp all afternoon, forcing both teams to take batting practice indoors

Dodger Stadium organist, Nancy Bea Hefley, cued up “Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head” when the teams changed sides for the third inning.

The rain was falling heavily by the fifth and sixth innings. At one point, Anderson stepped off the pitching rubber to allow a flash of lightning to run its course through the sky.

The Rockies had runners on first and third base and one out in the sixth inning when the game was delayed."
