Worth noting

• Rafael Betancourt has nine saves in nine opportunities this season, posting a 1-1 record with a 1.88 ERA. One interesting statistic, however, is his eight walks (one intentional) in 15 games spanning 14 1/3 innings.

Last season Betancourt allowed 12 walks all season while posting 31 saves in 60 games with a 2.81 ERA over 57 2/3 innings.

"I'm not really concerned," manager Walt Weiss said. "His misses have been near-misses. Even [Wednesday] night, he threw some balls right on the edge of the zone. It still looks like Raffy to me. It doesn't look like anything's going on there."

Betancourt pitched the ninth in both Yankees games, and Weiss said he should be available for a third consecutive appearance if needed.

"Unless I hear otherwise, Raffy would be available," Weiss said. "He's a borderline guy today."

• Regis Jesuit, the high school team Weiss managed before taking the Rockies job, is poised to open its bid for the Colorado State Championship, Class 5A, this weekend. The team is seeded eighth in the tournament, and features Weiss' son Brody, a senior, as the starting shortstop. Brody is committed to the University of California-Santa Barbara.

"That's a fun tournament," Weiss said. "I've been a part of that the last three or four years, helping out with Regis. It's a really good time, and Regis always shows up well in that state tournament, so go Raiders."
