“It means a lot to my career,” Colon said through a translator after matching the Washington Nationals‘ Max Scherzer and the Cubs’ John Lackey, who accomplished the feat last season. “Now, I haven’t won in two stadiums, so that’s the next goal.”
The 44-year-old right-hander has yet to win at Wrigley Field (0-1) or Chase Field (0-2).
Colon (5-10) was staked to a nine-run lead after the first inning, the franchise’s third nine-run first in its history.
In his 20th season, Colon became the 18th overall pitcher to complete the feat, starting with Al Leiter in 2002.
