Monday's gametime temperature of 100 degrees was the highest in 20 seasons of Rockies home games. Five other games started at 97 -- one at Mile High Stadium and the others at Coors. The last game that started at 97 degrees was against the Pirates on June 7, 2006.
The daytime high at Denver International Airport was 105, which tied a record.
The heat comes at a difficult time, as multiple wildfires are burning throughout Colorado.
Veteran catcher Ramon Hernandez, who has missed 29 games with a strained left hand, played catch at Coors Field on Monday.
