The Arizona Diamondbacks were scheduled to take on the Colorado Rockies in the first of a three-game set at 5:40 p.m. on Tuesday night at Coors Field.

Unfortunately for baseball fans, rain has forced the tarp to cover the infield and push back first pitch to 6:30 p.m.

D-backs starter Luke Weaver will be on the mound for Arizona on Tuesday night. The right-hander will be making his 2021 season debut.

Fellow right-hander German Marquez will be on the bump for the Rockies.

The 26-year-old Marquez made his first start of the season against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Opening Day.

He went four innings, allowing just one earned run on six hits and six walks to go along with two strikeouts.

Tuesday night will also mark the first regular-season game in which the D-backs will be facing the Rockies without third baseman Nolan Arenado after he was traded to the St. Louis Cardinals this past offseason.

Arizona will be looking to make it two wins in a row after dropping the opening three games of the season.

First pitch is slated for 6:30 p.m. Catch all the action on ESPN 620 AM.
