Bettis struck out two, ending the game with a 0.00 ERA and 0.86 WHIP on the season. Analysis: He hadn't pitched in the majors since being diagnosed with testicular cancer in November. Bettis had surgery for the condition, but tests in March showed the cancer had spread to his lymph nodes. He later underwent chemotherapy. He was able to harness his emotions and put together a strong outing.
