On May 6th, Bartolo Colon allowed 3 runs on 8 hits as the Mets lost to the Miami Marlins 3-0. His ERA ballooned up to 5.36 as his record lowered to 2-5 on the year.
His next start saw him give up 7 runs on 11 hits in 5 2/3rd innings against the Yankees, setting his ERA at a season-high 5.84.
Then Bartolo Colon settled down. Since that start at Yankee Stadium, Bartolo Colon is 6-0, earning wins for his team in all but one game, a 5-4 loss to the San Francisco Giants that Colon was not responsible for. His ERA during this seven game span is 1.58, which has helped lower his season's ERA down to a more respected 3.67.
And that doesn't even consider the two hits that he has produced in the last two games, the first in St. Louis that has become a rally-starter that has now seen the Mets win 5 of their last 6 games, including Monday night's 10-1 win over the league-leading Oakland A's.
