Chad Bettis was straight dealing on Tuesday night.

He was brilliant in holding the Pirates scoreless over 7-and-a-third innings. Bettis allowed only five hits with two walks and three strikeouts in the Colorado Rockies 2-0 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

By earning the win, Bettis ran his record to 3-0, with two victories coming on this road trip. The Rockies have won five of six games in Washington and PIttsburgh.

Ryan McMahon and Carlos Gonzalez each had an RBI to support Bettis. Bryan Shaw, Jake McGee and Wade Davis worked out of the bullpen to preserve the win. Davis earned his eighth save of the season.

The Rockies win a series in Pittsburgh for the first time in seven years and will go for the sweep on Wednesday.

Coverage of the game begins at 9:55 a.m. MDT on KOA NewsRadio 850 AM and 94.1 FM.
