Chad Bettis is on a big-time roll.
The Colorado Rockies right-hander shut out the Mets over seven innings on Saturday night and the Rockies won their second straight game at Citi Field, this one by a 2-0 count.
Bettis allowed only six hits while walking one and stirking out two. In five road starts, Bettis now has an ERA of 1.35.
Nolan Arenado hit a solo home run in the first inning. David Dahl's pinch-hit single brought home an insurance run in the top of the ninth.
In between, Bettis was brilliant. He turned it over to Adam Ottavino, who worked a scoreless eighth before Wade Davis locked down his Major League-leading 13th save with a scoreless ninth.
The Rockies will go for the sweep on Sunday. Coverage of the game starts with Rockies Q&A at 10:05 a.m. MDT on KOA NewsRadio 850 AM and 94.1 FM.
After Saturday's win, KOA NewsRadio Voice of the Rockies Jerry Schemmel caught up with David Dahl.
