Colon's worst outing in six weeks is over

Bartolo Colon is out of the game after five innings, having allowed seven hits, five runs and two home runs, although one of them -- a solo shot by Billy Butler in the third that appeared to hit the padding on top of the wall -- was disputed and needed to be reviewed by the umpires. But what was beyond dispute was that this was Colon's worst outing since July 7, when he surrendered 10 hits and five runs to the Rays in a 5-1 Yankees loss. (Colon gave up eight runs to the Blue Jays on July 14, but only three were earned).
