San Diego's Adam Rosales led off the ninth with a pinch-hit single, and manager Walt Weiss had decided to replace pitcher German Marquez with Boone Logan when it started hailing, which later turned to rain. 

Minutes earlier, the Rockies had asked fans in the upper deck and Rockpile sections to move to the concourse because of lightning in the area.
