Padres pitcher doesn’t want to talk about giving up homer to Bartolo Colon
Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon picked up his third win of the year Saturday against the Padres, and in the second inning achieved the "impossible." The 42-year-old blasted a James Shields fastball into the seats in left field at Petco Park for his first career home run in 249 plate appearances. It was Bartolo’s first hit of the year, and the two-run shot boosted his career RBI total to 11.

Padres pitcher James Shields understandably wasn’t in the mood to talk about the moment after the game.
Q: What was the pitch to Colon?
"It was a fastball, man."
Q: Were you surprised to see him hit a HR?
"Next question, man."
