Bettis tosses 2-hitter, Rockies beat Giants 6-0

DENVER (AP) - Chad Bettis threw a two-hitter for his first career complete game, Carlos Gonzalez hit a grand slam as part of a six-run third and the Colorado Rockies beat the slumping San Francisco Giants 6-0 on Monday.
 
Bettis (12-7) was perfect until Eduardo Nunez singled with two outs in the fifth inning.  The right-hander struck out seven and walked none.
 
San Francisco intentionally walked Nolan Arenado to face Gonzalez in the third. Gonzalez lined a fastball from Matt Moore over the fence in right-center for his second grand slam of the season.
 
An erratic Moore (2-4 with Giants, 9-11 overall) allowed six runs in 2 2/3 innings - his shortest outing of the season. He walked four and threw two wild pitches.
 
The Giants had the best record in baseball at the All-Star break, but things have unraveled. They've gone a major league-worst 16-31 since then, lost their lead in the NL West and are now trying to hang on to a wild-card spot.
