Colon effective

Word from Pawtucket is that Bartolo Colon topped off at 97 miles per hour and threw three strong innings, allowing four hits and one run in a 4-2 PawSox win over Norfolk tonight in Game 1 of the twinbill.

Colon didn’t walk anyone and struck out two.

Alex Cora, who played shortstop, went 0 for 3 and Sean Casey doubled in two official ABs, with a walk. Both players will come here tomorrow and probably be activated.
