Bartolo Colon rocked again in what might’ve been his final start with Braves

If you didn’t stay up until 1 a.m. to watch Bartolo Colon and the Braves take on the Padres, don’t worry — you didn’t miss anything. They lost by a score of 7-4.

The ball probably should’ve been caught by Matt Kemp — and Colon had the batter before struck out on a check-swing strike three that wasn't called correctly — but nevertheless the Braves were already in a hole. San Diego added on two more runs in the third and fourth...
