|Sep. 5 2:43 PM PT3:43 PM MT4:43 PM CT5:43 PM ET17:43 ET21:43 GMT5:43 2:43 PM MST4:43 PM EST5:13 PM VEN1:43 UAE (+1)4:43 PM CT-Colon won his third straight decision Monday, allowing five hits and one walk over six scoreless innings against the Reds.

Analysis: New York said X-rays were negative on the right-hander, who entered 3-0 with a 1.93 ERA in his last five starts. Manager Terry Collins says Colon is doing fine with good flexibility, good strength and just a little swelling in his thumb.
|June 17 8:37 AM PT9:37 AM MT10:37 AM CT11:37 AM ET11:37 ET15:37 GMT23:37 8:37 AM MST10:37 AM EST11:07 AM VEN19:37 UAE10:37 AM CT-Colon continues to defy age, taking a four-hit shutout into the eighth inning Wednesday and beating the Pirates.
