38-Year-Old Colon Shuts Down Angels 6-0

ANAHEIM, Calif. (CBS/AP) The 38-year-old Bartolo Colon pitched eight innings of four-hit ball and Cuban rookie Yoenis Cespedes hit a three-run homer to help the Oakland Athletics beat the cellar-dwelling Los Angeles Angels 6-0 on Wednesday night.

Colon (3-1) struck out five and walked none, helping drop his former team six games behind two-time defending AL champion Texas in the AL West – just 12 games into the season.

Jonny Gomes added a solo shot for the Angels against Ervin Santana (0-3), who gave up four runs and seven hits over seven innings with five strikeouts. The Angels’ No. 3 starter is 5-7 with a 3.90 ERA in 14 starts since his no-hitter at Cleveland on July 27, and has a 6.75 ERA in his three starts this season.
