Rockies SP Chad Bettis stays sharp in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2015) Rockies starter Chad Bettis put together a solid outing but was unable to factor into the decision Wednesday night at home against the Dodgers.

Bettis surrendered a run-scoring single to Yasmani Grandal in the second and a run-scoring double to Justin Turner in the fifth. He was charged with two runs -- one earned -- on five hits and three walks while striking out five over six innings of a 7-6 victory. Of his 102 pitches, 60 were strikes.

Bettis has allowed three earned runs over his last three starts (22 1/3 innings), lowering his ERA from 4.19 to 2.70 over that span. His next start will come Tuesday at home against St. Louis.


Rockies SP Chad Bettis flirts with perfection in win on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/29/2015) Rockies starter Chad Bettis was stellar on Friday night against the Phillies. Bettis, who was making his fourth start of the season, took a perfect game into the seventh inning. A Troy Tulowitzki error allowed Ben Revere to reach to lead off the inning, ending the perfect game.

"Initially, I thought it was right at 'Tulo' -- perfect, here we go," Bettis said, per MLB.com. "Then I turned around and looked and I was like, 'Aw, man.'"

Bettis still carried a no-hitter into the eighth, until Cody Asche recorded a hit with one out in the inning. 

Overall, Bettis threw eight shutout innings, allowing just two hits on the evening, as he improved to 2-0. He struck out seven batters, which matches a career-high, set in his previous start.

"He was coming off his best outing, and he topped even that one," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "He commanded the fastball and threw his secondary pitches for strikes whenever he wanted."

In his last two starts, Bettis has allowed just two runs and eight hits in 16 1/3 innings, and his ERA has dropped to 2.96. He'll look to keep the good times rolling in his next start, scheduled for Tuesday at home against Dodgers.


Rockies to start pitcher Chad Bettis in Friday's game


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2015) With the Rockies shuffling their starting rotation due to Jorge De La Rosa missing his Tuesday start, the team will turn to pitcher Chad Bettis to start Friday's game at Philadelphia, reports MLB.com.

Rockies SP Chad Bettis sparkles in victory


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/24/2015) Rockies starter Chad Bettis nearly went the distance but did more than enough in his 8 1/3 innings of work as Colorado cruised to an 11-2 triumph over the Giants on Sunday. 

Bettis picked up his first win of the season in just his third start. He allowed two runs on six hits and struck out seven, marking his best outing for the Rockies.

"I was the most convicted and aggressive with every single pitch [as I have been] this year," the Rockies right-hander said to MLB.com. 

Bettis picked up his first MLB victory since Sept. 16, 2013, when he earned a win during a relief appearance. 

"There's so much separation [in speeds], it makes it tough on a hitter," manager Walt Weiss said. "Fastball command was really good. He ran it up to 96 [mph], I believe. He added and subtracted with his fastball and threw the big slow hook that he commanded for a strike also. He got some free strikes with it early in at-bats."


Rockies' Chad Bettis still searching for win No. 1, settles for ND


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) Rockies pitcher Chad Bettis gave his club six solid innings and was unable to factor into the decision Tuesday night at home against Philadelphia.

Bettis has allowed seven earned runs over his first 11 innings pitched this season. He will look for his first win of the season Sunday at home against San Francisco.


Rockies' Chad Bettis allows four runs in no-decision vs. Dodgers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2015) Rockies pitcher Chad Bettis was unable to factor into the decision in his season debut on Thursday, giving up four earned runs on seven hits and four walks in five innings while striking out three in his team's 5-4 victory over the Dodgers.

Bettis (0-1) gave up a pair of runs on a first-inning double, watched a third run score on a double by the opposing pitcher in the second inning, and allowed a fourth run to come home on a fifth-inning single. A lengthy rain delay ensured he wouldn't come out for the sixth inning, but with 106 pitches thrown, his night was likely done anyway.

Bettis would face the Phillies Tuesday if he sticks in the rotation for another start.

Rockies' Chad Bettis to compete for starting role


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2015) Rockies pitcher Chad Bettis spent most of 2014 as a reliever but was converted into a starter late in the year and will compete for a rotation spot this spring, MLB.com reports.

"It was relief, so to speak," Bettis said. "I was back at home. I was at ease with it. And I had it cut out this offseason trying to get back to where I was starting-wise. It's definitely a good thing. I've been through it before, competing for a spot. But it's controlling what you can and keeping it as simple as you can."

Bettis also said he, his coaches and manager Walt Weiss felt he has to sharpen the location of his fastball, which has had "inconsistent movement … they brought that to my attention, and I completely agree."

Bettis posted a 9.12 ERA and 13:10 K:BB ratio in 24 2/3 innings out of the bullpen in 2014. He also made 20 appearances with Triple-A Colorado Springs, including five starts, and posted a 3.09 ERA and 55:21 K:BB ratio in 55 1/3 innings.
