Colon allowed six hits and two walks in the first inning while only recording two outs. He allowed eight runs, three of them earned. Colon appears to still be concerned about his injured leg, which caused him to miss the last three weeks of June, and says that the leg is preventing him from throwing a good sinker. It's worth pointing out, though, that the Jays weren't always hitting him hard - their big inning included two infield singles, and error and a balk.
Andruw Jones had a solo homer in a four-run third inning for the Yankees, then got the Bombers within two with a three-run jack in the sixth. But the Jays scored two runs each in the sixth and seventh and three runs in the eighth to put the game away, with reliever Sergio Mitre absorbing most of the damage.
Jo-Jo Reyes picked up the win despite allowing seven runs in 5.1 innings.
The Yankees now trail the Boston Red Sox by 1.5 games in the A.L. East.
