Denver • The game between the New York Mets and the Colorado Rockies has been postponed as another spring snow storm passed through the Mile High City.

No makeup date has been announced for Wednesday's game.

Monday's game was pushed due to flurries and made up as part of a doubleheader Tuesday that was swept by the Rockies. Team employees, including owner Dick Monfort, shoveled 8 inches of snow off the field.

Wintry conditions in Minneapolis on Sunday forced the Mets' game at the Twins to be rescheduled for Aug. 19.

Colorado and New York are to wrap up the series Thursday with an afternoon game. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with the high about 34 degrees.
