Today, the Yankees jumped out to a first inning, 3 run lead, and Bartolo Colon kept up his end of the deal by continuing his 2001 impersonation.
Needing just 103 pitches to get 27 outs, Colon was masterful. Scattering just four hits (and zero walks), no Oakland baserunner managed to reach third, and the A's never really threatened to do much of anything. The Yankees bats helped Colon out with insurance runs in the 7th and 9th, so in a non-save situation, The Binder allowed him to finish what he started.
