Yankees score early; Colon takes it from there

Tweet [1]

It took Oakland starter Trevor Cahill one inning to settle in. Bartolo Colon was locked in from the beginning, and that made the difference in a 5-0 Yankees win in Oakland. A three-run first inning gave Colon all the run support he would need. The Yankees chipped away for two more late-inning runs, but those hardly mattered with Colon pitching so well. He tossed a complete game shutout, the Yankees first shutout since September of last year. He struck out six, walked none and scattered four hits.
