Colon leaves after solid outing with a ND


Yankees starter Bartolo Colon has turned over Thursday's game to the bullpen. The veteran warmed up before the seventh but was pulled for reliever Rafael Soriano with the game tied at 2-2.

Colon, who will get a no-decision, pitched six solid innings, giving up two runs and five hits, while striking out three and walking two. He worked in and out of trouble, including a bases-loaded jam, but gave up a two-run homer to Alberto Callaspo in the fifth inning.

In an interesting stat, Colon has now given up two runs in each of his last four starts.
