Bettis took the no-decision in his second start of the season going 5.2 innings giving up one earned off of four hits while striking out three and walking two. His ground ball game was on-point as he was able to induce 10 ground ball outs.
His command has been shaky for his standards as he owns a BB/9 of 5.06, which is off from his career average of 3.12. Also, although he has a nice 2.53 ERA, his FIP is currently sitting at 4.90 meaning his defense has been making him look good.
Colorado’s bats have been in a little slumber only slashing .208/.285/.351 in the last week while they have hit 17 extra-base hits and 22 RBI. They have managed to take 43 walks, but they have also racked up 111 strikeouts.
Gonzalez dominated the competition once again, this time against the New York Mets going 5.1 innings giving up one earned off of six hits while striking out six and walking three. The lefties ERA now sits at a sparkling 1.59 while his FIP has been just as good sitting at 1.79.
He has definitely picked up from his stellar season from a year ago where he posted a 2.96 ERA. His 10.32 K/9 is the highest of his career while he has kept the walks down with a 3.18 BB/9, while he has yet to give up a home run yet. Yes it is still very early in the season, but you have got to like what you’ve seen thus far.
Washington’s lineup hasn’t been too productive in the last week only slashing .217/.321/.320 while hitting 16 extra-base hits and 14 RBI. They have done a great job at taking the free bases as they rank first in walks with 58 compared to their 92 strikeouts.
