DENVER — Nolan Arenado had four hits and four RBIs, leading Chad Bettis and the Colorado Rockies to an 11-2 victory over the Giants on Sunday.

Troy Tulowitzki and Nick Hundley each drove in two runs as Rockies earned a split of the rain-soaked, four-game series.

Bettis (1-0) was nearly unhittable until the ninth inning. Nori Aoki singled on the first pitch of the game, and San Francisco's next hit was Matt Duffy's leadoff single in the eighth.

Bettis was charged with two runs and six hits in a career-long 8 1/3 innings. He struck out a career-high seven and walked two.

Aoki led off the ninth with a double and scored on Joe Panik's single to left. Buster Posey's one-out single extended his hitting streak to 16 games and Brandon Belt followed with an RBI double to chase Bettis. Brooks Brown got the last two outs.

The start of the game was delayed 2 hours, 10 minutes while a thunderstorm moved through the area. All four games in the series were delayed by rain, including both ends of Saturday's doubleheader.

The Rockies have dealt with weather delays at Coors Field throughout the spring. Saturday's nightcap was a makeup of an April 26th rainout, and four other games were either postponed or shortened due to rain.
