[edit] Biographical Information

Pitcher Chad Bettis was selected by the Houston Astros in the eighth round of the 2007 amateur draft but did not sign, opting to attend Texas Tech University instead. He was then chosen by the Colorado Rockies in the second round of the 2010 amateur draft. Signed by scout Dar Cox, he made his pro debut that summer with the Tri-City Dust Devils, going 4-1 with a 1.12 ERA in 10 outings. He then earned a promotion to the Asheville Tourists, winning 2 of his 3 starts while posting a 0.96 ERA. With the Modesto Nuts in 2011, he went 12-5 with a 3.34 ERA in 27 starts. He led the California League with 184 strikeouts and was named the league's Pitcher of the Year.

Bettis pitched a great game to record his first win of the 2015 season - and only the second of his career - on May 24th. Facing the San Francisco Giants, he gave up a lead-off single to Nori Aoki in the 1st inning, then did not surrender another hit until Matt Duffy led off the 8th also with a single. He tired in the 9th but ended up with an 11-2 win in the longest outing of his career, 8 1/3 innings.
