The Chad Bettis Rehab Road Tour hits Albuquerque for three innings

MLB: Colorado Rockies-Media Day Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

Chad Bettis inched closer to his long anticipated Denver return on Sunday night with a rehab start in Albuquerque. Bettis pitched into the third inning, throwing 62 pitches and striking out four Salt Lake Bees. He allowed six hits and three runs, only allowing one extra base hit. The start was Bettis’s first in AAA after a successful start in Hartford the week prior.

Bettis will likely make at least one more start in Albuquerque before returning to Denver and aiding the Rockies second half run. He spoke to our own Bryan Kilpatrick about his return and his curveball. The Isotopes won the game 9-8 to move over .500 once again this season at 51-50.

Bettis wasn’t the only rehabbing Rockie to make an impact on Sunday, outfielder David Dahl hit his first AAA home run in the bottom of the first inning. Dahl finished the night 2-for-5 with two RBI.
