Blowout in the Bronx

The Yankees didn’t need a win tonight, and I guess that’s the silver lining after a 15-8 debacle. The Rays knocked Bartolo Colon out of the game after three innings, did plenty of damage against a series of September call-ups and pulled within two games of the Red Sox in the wild-card race. Colon has now had two starts in a row in which he’s pitched four innings or less, and he’s far from the reliable starter he was in the first half. Andruw Jones had a two-run homer and Jesus Montero had a two-run double, but the Yankees were outgunned from the very beginning. Andrew Brackman made a scoreless major-league debut, but Dellin Betances allowed two runs on four walks and a hit batter during his two-thirds of an inning.
