Bettis gets start tonight

Rockies fall to Giants before heading home

The Colorado Rockies (38-46, 3rd NL West) were hoping to capitalize on their 7-3 win Tuesday night but the San Francisco Giants’ (54-33, 1st NL West) Brandon Belt had other plans, and he implemented them early, popping out an RBI triple in the bottom of the first inning. This allowed the SP Johnny Cueto to come out and calmly work his magic, shutting out the Rockies in nine innings.

“He’s one of the best pitchers in the game,” said Jorge De La Rosa, who lost both of his starts during the Rockies’ 1-5 road trip despite allowing just five runs in 14 innings. “I just had to keep the game close and wait until the guys start swinging the bats.”

The Rockies return home to face the Philadelphia Phillies in a four game series kicking off at 7:40 tonight.  Chad Bettis (6-6, 5.85 ERA) is scheduled to take the mound for the Rockies and will match up against Adam Morgan (1-6, 6.31 ERA).  Bettis has gone 4-1 in his last five starts.  Morgan is starting in place of Aaron Nola.

Arenado placed on the DL

With Carlos Gonzalez already on the shelf, the Rockies got some more bad news as Nolan Arenado was placed on the 15-day disabled list after breaking his left middle finger sliding into second base.

“I kind of feel like I’m letting these guys down a little bit,” Arenado said. “That hurts a little bit.”

But Manager Walt Weiss already knew that Gonzalez was being hard on himself so he got in contact with him.

“I kind of feel like I’m letting these guys down a little bit,” Arenado said. “That hurts a little bit.”

The Rockies are on the road and in the middle of a three game series against the Philadelphia Phillies.  Great seats and cheap tickets are still available!
