Bartolo Colon Pitching at Norfolk 19 July 2009
Tonight the Tides beat the Knights of Charlotte 4-3 defeating Chicago White Sox pitcher Bartolo Colon. Colon who has pitched in two All Star Games, won the Cy Young Award in 2005 with the Angelsby going 21-8 with a 3,48 ERA and is in the 100 MPH club was pitching in a Rehab start against the Tides. He was rocked on the second pitch of the game by Tides Shortstop Blake Davis who went yard to the right field picnic area. The Tides scored a second run that inning and in the bottom of the 5th nJeff Fiorentino who hit a three run shot last night went yard again with a two run blast off Colon. Colon took the loss while Andy Mitchell pitched 7 inning for the Tides improving to 8-2 on the year. I was fortunate to get two great photos tonight one of Colon pitching and one of Fiorentino’s home run.
