Schemmel temporarily takes over radio play-by-play duties


ST. LOUIS -- Rockies radio broadcaster Jack Corrigan called Saturday's game on 850 KOA AM, but he will be away for the next two games because his brother-in-law passed away.

Jerry Schemmel, who usually shares play-by-play and color duties with Corrigan, will operate as the play-by-play man for Sunday's game against the Cardinals and Monday's against the Cubs. Root Sports Rocky Mountain pregame and postgame commentator and MLB.com columnist Tracy Ringolsby will fill in as the color commentator for the two broadcasts.
