Colon allowed four runs on 10 hits and a walk while striking out three in six innings in the Mets' 4-1 defeat by the Brewers on Wednesday; the team's seventh loss in a row.

Colon allowed the first four hitters to reach and trailed 2-0 right off the bat. He settled down after that but surrendered a run in the fifth allowing two hits after he failed to beat Ryan Braun to the bag on a groundball to Lucas Duda with two outs and none on in the frame, Colon allowed a home run to Scooter Gennett in the sixth, the 14th longball he has given up in 92 innings after getting tagged for 22 in 202.1 innings last season. After a great first three starts, Colon has really struggled his last 12, surrendering 45 runs in 72 innings.

Colon (9-5) was roughed up for seven runs (six earned) on nine hits and a walk over 4.1 innings Thursday in Toronto.

Well, there are Good Bartolo days and Bad Bartolo days. This was the painfully hittable version of Colon that's been known to show up for stretches of time this year. Of course, inconsistency is to be expected from a 42-year-old who looks more like a coach than a player at this point. One thing you can say for him, though, is that Colon has received a decision in each and every one of his 14 starts this season. He'll make the next one Wednesday against Milwaukee.

Colon allowed two runs on six hits, walking two and striking out three over six innings of a 5-3 victory against the Braves on Friday night.

Colon (9-4, 4.41 ERA) continues to pick up wins, but there have been hints that he isn't as sharp as he was early in the season. He walked two in this one - very unusual in itself - and he needed 100 pitches (65 for strikes) to cover six innings. The Mets have a log jam in their rotation and need space for younger arms so Colon has been mentioned in trade speculation, but while his WHIP will probably remain pretty attractive, his ERA and strikeout totals probably won't help, and wins, of course, are always tough to tack down.

Colon was a hard-luck loser Saturday, allowing two runs on five hits and walk with seven strikeouts in seven innings in the Mets' 2-1 defeat by Arizona.

Colon cruised through the first 6.2 innings, then surrendered a line drive single to Chris Owings that dropped in front of Michael Cuddyer, who was playing deep in no-extra base hit defense. Welington Castillo homered on the next pitch just over the left field fence to make a loser of Colon,

Colon became the National League's first eight-game winner Sunday, allowing three runs on six hits and no walks with two strikeouts over seven innings in the Mets' 4-3 victory over the Marlins.

Colon was the beneficiary of New York in the bottom of the seventh inning and a five-out save from Jeurys Familia to get the victory. In addition, he ripped a double in the left-center field gap to drive in a run that while on the basepaths, the game broadcasters said he speed on the bases was being measured by a sundial. Despite his portly frame, Colon has shown he is durable and is more than halfway to the 15 wins he notched last year.

Colon walked two batters and struck out six on his way to win number seven on the season. He's now 7-3 with a 4.82 ERA and 1.20 WHIP. Colon had struggled over his last few starts, but seems to be getting back on track. He'll get the Marlins at home in his next start to look for win number eight.

Colon (6-3) was hammered for nine runs (eight earned) on 11 hits and a pair of walks over 4.1 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Cardinals.

Regression has come painfully for Colon, who's been torn up to the tune of 26 hits -- five of them homers -- and 17 earned runs over 15.1 innings in his last three starts. In fact, Colon's only prevented the opposing offense from hitting a home run one time in nine tries. The bright side of being around the plate so much is that Colon still has an insane 46:3 K:BB for the season, but he's clearly an ERA risk with the amount of contact he gives up. He'll draw the Phillies on Monday.

Colon allowed six runs (five earned) on seven hits, he did not walk a batter and struck out two over five innings of a 7-0 loss to the Brewers on Friday night.

Colon (6-2, 3.86 ERA) is always around the plate (he hasn't walked a hitter since his first start of the season) tossing 52 of 62 pitches for strikes, but he allowed two more home runs which has been his downfall. He typically limits the damage by not issuing free passes, but he can be pretty hittable which is always a concern.

Colon tossed six innings and picked up his sixth win of the season in Sunday's victory over the Phillies. He allowed four earned runs, eight hits, and posted a 6:0 K:BB ratio in the game.

The four earned runs tied a season high for Colon and he also allowed a home run for the sixth time in seven starts, but that did not prevent him from coming away with another victory. Colon owns a 0.99 WHIP on the season and has yet to walk a batter since Opening Day.
