DENVER – The snow in Colorado has scrapped Philadelphia's plans for Pedro Martinez to make his first postseason start in five years.

After Game 3 of the Rockies-Phillies playoff series was postponed because of winter weather today, the Phillies announced a pitching change.

They will send lefty J.A. Happ to the mound instead of Martinez. Happ, a rookie, said Friday that he felt better after being knocked out of Game 1. He he entered in relief and took a hard liner off his left leg in the seventh inning.

The Rockies on Sunday are sticking with their scheduled starter, right-hander Jason Hammel.
