Colon does it again

Bartolo Colon continues to exceed all expectations, and tonight he pitched well enough to make up for a lineup that continues to struggle. An early three-run lead was enough as Colon pitched eight scoreless innings and carried the Yankees to a 3-1 win against the White Sox. Robinson Cano’s first-inning home run drove in all three Yankees runs. They had only three hits after the first, but it didn’t matter because Colon gave the Yankees another masterful start, serving as his own bridge to closer Mariano Rivera, who pitched a scoreless ninth to end his own streak of back-to-back blown saves.
