Colon Wins Seventh, Plays Stopper For Mets

After a rough three game stretch that saw him go 1-2 with a 9.98 ERA, Bartolo Colon limited the Phillies to three runs in six innings on Monday and got the win to improve to 7-3 for the season.

Gut Reaction: Mets 6, Phillies 3 (5/25/15)

Bartolo Colon pitched a quality start for the first time since May 5th and the Mets received home runs from Lucas Duda, Michael Cuddyer and Wilmer Flores to push past the lowly Phillies. I never get tired of saying “lowly Phillies”. Cuddyer and Flores in particular needed to step up to Terry Collins’ call-to-arms after Sunday’s brutal loss and sweep at the hands of the Pirates...

At 42, Bartolo Colon shines with guile and precision pitches

NEW YORK (AP) Bartolo Colon settled in a chair and threw a rubber ball against his black glove. He repeated the motion several times, then leaned back and threw the ball in the air, mimicking a fielding drill. That was his routine before one of his worst starts since he signed with the New York Mets in 2014. The right-hander gave up 11 hits, eight earned runs and - even more surprisingly...

Bartolo Colon gets robbed; Bryce Harper vs. umpire

There was a tragedy in Major League Baseball Wednesday night. Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon was thought to have legged out -- yes, legged out -- an infield hit. However, that dream was quickly destroyed when the official scorer ruled the play an error. Terrible, right? Poor guy busted it down the line for nothing. Well, hopefully this gallery of Colon through the years (19 to be exact...

Despite Struggles, No Cause For Concern With Colon

There is no way around it: Over the past two weeks, Bartolo Colon has been dreadful. Over that span, he has made three starts, allowing 19 runs (17 earned) on 26 hits in just 15.1 innings. His last two starts have been especially bad, with Colon allowing six and then nine runs. Last night, he went less that five innings for the first time all season. All of this comes at a time when...

Cardinals tag Bartolo Colon, knock Mets out of first place in NL East

Two Of Those Days

The Mets lost again on Wednesday. Somehow, they lost worse today than they did on Tuesday. Maybe it was because Bartolo Colon tired out after legging out an error. No coincidence that after Bartolo’s sprint, he walked two hitters. But whether you believe that or not, it really doesn’t matter because the Mets have gotten slaughtered two straight games and have now fallen out...

Another day, another drubbing of the New York Mets. Just when you thought the Mets’ 10-2 loss to the Cardinals last night was bad enough, they somehow managed to top themselves tonight. It all got started in the first, when Mets starter Bartolo Colon was obviously without his best stuff.
