 DENVER (AP) - The Colorado Rockies might have a hard time warming up their bats when the World Series shifts to Coors Field on Saturday night, where the weather is expected to be cool but dry for Game 3 against the Boston Red Sox.
Temperatures for the first World Series game played in Colorado are expected to be in the high 30s or low 40s, with a slight breeze and no precipitation, said National Weather Service forecaster Mike Baker.
``It doesn't look too bad if you have a nice jacket and keep warm,'' he said Friday.
Boston swept the first two games at Fenway Park, stifling the Rockies' powerful offense in a 13-1 rout in the opener and a 2-1 victory Thursday night.
The forecast is particularly good news after a storm swept through the state on Sunday, dropping several inches of snow and forcing the Rockies indoors for their next-to-last workout before flying off to Boston.
Game 4 on Sunday should be even better, with gametime temperatures in the upper 40s or low 50s.
