Strong performances on the mound
Bettis received the start for the team, surrendering three runs in two innings of work. After giving up a leadoff single to Socrates Brito, Bettis worked a couple of ground balls before a walk to David Peralta and a two-out, three-run home run to Steven Souza Jr.
In the second inning, Bettis allowed a leadoff single to Yasmany Tomas before inducing a double-play from Nick Ahmed and a strikeout of Alex Avila to end the inning and, subsequently, his day. All said and done, not a bad day from Bettis.
Jeff Hoffman replaced Bettis and proceeded to fire two scoreless innings of his own before giving way to Chi Chi Gonzalez. Hoffman is one to watch this spring, as the former main chip in the Troy Tulowitzki trade looks to find his way back to the show.
Concerning the remaining arms to appear, Gonzalez also pitched two scoreless innings, giving up two hits. He has a career 4.54 ERA across 77 1/3 innings, all with the Texas Rangers and remains a long shot to make the Opening Day roster.
DJ Johnson earned the win, with a scoreless seventh. Johnson appeared in 6 1/3 innings for the 2018 Rockies, pitching to a 4.26 ERA and striking out a third of the batters he faced.
