At 42, Bartolo Colon shines with guile and precision pitches

NEW YORK (AP) Bartolo Colon settled in a chair and threw a rubber ball against his black glove. He repeated the motion several times, then leaned back and threw the ball in the air, mimicking a fielding drill.

That was his routine before one of his worst starts since he signed with the New York Mets in 2014. The right-hander gave up 11 hits, eight earned runs and - even more surprisingly - two walks in the May 20 game against the St. Louis Cardinals at Citi Field.

Before walking Kolten Wong in the fourth inning, Colon set a franchise record with 48 2-3 consecutive innings without a walk. The previous mark was 47 2-3, set by Bret Saberhagen in 1994.
