“There is no pain at all, but every time I react and cover the base I get nervous about it,” said Colon, who couldn’t field two infield dribblers in the first that drove in runs. “I think my sinker isn’t sinking because I am thinking too much.”
“I was unsure,” Colon, 38, said of his mindset on the way to first base. “It’s no excuse, I didn’t pitch good at all.”
