Update (9:02 PM EST): Bettis struck out Maikel Franco to begin the eighth inning, but lost his no-hitter to Cody Asche, who hit a weak ground ball through the left side of infield as the Rockies deployed a shift to the right side.

Rockies starter Chad Bettis has no-hit the Phillies through seven innings in Friday night’s start. He had a perfect game through six, but lost it on a Ben Revere line drive which was deflected by Bettis and was unable to be corralled by shortstop Troy Tulowitzki. Tulowitzki was charged with an error by the official scorer.

Bettis, 26, is making his fourth start of the season. In 88 2/3 career major league innings, he has a 6.29 ERA with a 58/36 K/BB ratio.

We’ll keep you updated as Bettis attempts to maintain his no-hitter over the final two innings.

Coincidentally, today is the five-year anniversary of Roy Halladay’s perfect game against the Florida Marlins. The Phillies were also no-hit by Josh Beckett and the Dodgers just over a year ago.
