Bartolo Colon didn’t have it this afternoon, but the Yankees offense picked him up and gave Mariano Rivera the opportunity to pickup career save No. 601 in a 7-6 Yankees win against the Blue Jays. Rivera locked down the win with a scoreless ninth, moving into a tie with Trevor Hoffman for the all-time saves record. Colon lasted just four innings and left the Yankees with a 6-1 deficit, but they came back behind home runs from Alex Rodriguez and Curtis Granderson. Rodriguez was playing his first game in a week, and Granderson had a three-hit day to snap out of a lengthy skid.
