Chad Bettis pitched deeper into the game than any Colorado Rockies' pitcher has so far this spring, going five innings in a 4-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks.
This was partly due to the time in the schedule, when pitchers begin to stretch out into their more typical pitch totals, and the fact that the last three games before this one featured some pretty ugly lines from the starters who had to be pulled early. There was no such concern for Bettis on Monday, keeping the scoreboard clean through the first three innings, giving up one run (while inducing a double play) in the fourth and another in the fifth. Two runs on six hits with four strikeouts. He didn't walk anybody.
