Betancourt struck out three batters in his 1.1 innings of relief duty during Thursday's victory over the Braves.

A two-hour, six-minute rain delay in the bottom of the first ended starter Kyle Kendrick's night earlier, forcing the bullpen to assume a heavy burden in the 5-3 win. Betancourt was quite integral to the success, working around two singles to keep the Braves off the board. The veteran reliever has given up two runs over 4.2 innings since returning from the disabled list in late June.
