Power outage impacts about 6,000 Xcel customers in west Denver

A power outage hit west Denver Wednesday evening, killing the lights — and the air conditioning — for about 6,000 people, a spokeswoman for Xcel Energy said.

On a 100-degree day, the power outages were reported around 6 p.m. near the intersection of West Colfax Avenue and Federal Boulevard, according to Xcel’s outage map. Company spokeswoman Michelle Aguayo said the outage was caused by a piece of damaged equipment and that crews were at the site making repairs.

Chi Chi Gonzalez goes on COVID IL, misses Rockies start

COVID-19 has left the Rockies’ rotation in a state of flux.

Right-hander Chi Chi Gonzalez, who was scheduled to start Wednesday night’s game at the Anaheim Angels, was scratched when he was placed on the COVID-19 injured list. The right-hander didn’t necessarily test positive for the virus, so it’s unclear how long he’ll be unavailable.

Rookie left-handed reliever Lucas Gilbreath started in Gonzalez’s place in a “bullpen game.” Gilbreath found out he was going to start Wednesday afternoon. He was expected to pitch two innings.
