Blackmon, Springer hit rare milestone

With RBIs being partially dependent on opportunity, racking them up as a leadoff man is no easy task. George Springer drove in his 70th run of the season Tuesday to join an exclusive club. Charlie Blackmon did so in late July, after also accomplishing the feat in 2016.

Bettis returns after cancer treatment with seven scoreless (0:38)

What a special night for Chad Bettis. In his return from cancer all he does is throw seven scoreless innings, throwing 90 pitches and recording 12 groundball outs. He won't get the win, however, as Julio Teheran also matched him with zeroes, giving us the chance for just the second 0-0 game through nine innings in Coors Field history.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Great story brewing in Colorado as Chad Bettis has tossed four scoreless innings in his first start of the season after undergoing cancer treatment. DJ LeMahieu made a diving stop for the final out of the fourth to save a run.
