Fans at Coors Field were dressed more for the ski slopes than Game 3 of the NL championship series.

With the gametime temperature hovering at 43 degrees Sunday night, and a light drizzle falling, the crowd showed up for the Colorado Rockies' matchup with the Arizona Diamondbacks wearing fleece jackets, gloves, wool caps and scarves.

It was only fitting that the Rockies sent Josh Fogg to the mound to deal with the elements in the first NLCS game in Denver in franchise history.

A cool drizzle fell all day and continued into the evening. The grounds crew didn't even remove the tarp until an hour before the game.

Both sides didn't think the cold, damp conditions would play a major role in the outcome.

``What elements?'' Arizona's Tony Clark said before the game. ``We knew coming in it was going to be chilly. They gotta play in it, too.''
