ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -Angels right-hander Bartolo Colon left Los Angeles' game against Oakland with a sore right elbow after giving up four runs in the first inning Monday night.
Colon, the 2005 AL Cy Young winner, had won his first five decisions before going into a skid. He was 1-5 with an 8.67 ERA over his last nine starts, not counting the short outing against the A's.
A torn right rotator cuff shortened his 2006 season.
Colon, 34, had a 21-8 record during his Cy Young-winning season. He has gone 7-10 since.
He threw 33 pitches in the first inning against Oakland, giving up four hits, with one walk and one strikeout. It was the only the fourth time in his career he's pitched one inning or less.
He's scheduled to have his elbow examined Tuesday.
