Argonauts 16, Giants 7 -- Wait, that was Blue Jays vs. Yankees?

From the top of the 3rd through the top of the 6th, the Yankees outscored the Toronto Blue Jays, the pesky ones from the True North Strong and Free, 7-0.

Can we count just those innings? Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way.

Bartolo Colon -- apparently having reaggravated his hamstring -- got shelled, and got no help from his defense, allowing 8 runs (just 3 earned) in the bottom of the 1st inning. (His record falls to 6-5). The Yankees closed to within 9-7, but the bullpen, especially Hector Noesi and the increasingly pathetic Sergio Mitre let the ceiling fall in.

Blue Jays 16, Yankees 7. That's a freakin' football score. Not the way to start the 2nd half of the season.

(Jo-Jo Reyes, no relation to Jose, was the winning pitcher for the Jays, 5-7.)

Any bright spots? Andruw Jones hit 2 homers, giving him 6 for the season. Robinson Cano got 3 hits, Curtis Granderson 2. That's about it.

If Colon has to miss starts again, the Yankees would have a problem, and the trading deadline is just 16 days away.

These teams play again tonight, officially a 7:07 start, Freddy Garcia against Brandon Morrow.
