Bartolo Colon Shuts Down Mets In Return
Bartolo Colon shut down the Mets in six scoreless innings in his first action since a stint on the disabled list.
Bartolo Colon strained his hamstring on June 11 against the Cleveland Indians. He returned from the DL to shutout the Mets in six scoreless innings pitched. Colon only gave up five hits and retired 13 batters in a row at one-point. Colon lowered his ERA to 2.88.
The production that the Yankees have gotten out of Colon this season has been staggering. Colon is 38 years old. He did not pitch one inning in the majors last year. His last action was in 2009 with the White Sox. He posted a 3-6 record with a 4.19 ERA in only 84.1 innings pitched. Most people thought the signing of Colon was a joke. Halfway through the season, it's turned out to be anything but.
