Chad Bettis just keeps inching closer and closer to a return with the Colorado Rockies.

Thursday night, the right-hander pitched a rehab assignment with the Double-A Hartford Yard Goats as he continues to recover from his battle with cancer.

It was the first time Bettis was on the mound this season since beating testicular cancer twice. He pitched two no-hit innings with three strikeouts, no walks and one unearned run.
