The Mets might be…good? Bartolo Colon tossed seven innings of one-run ball and also did some damage with the bat in a 4-1 win over the Marlins last night at Citi Field. The Mets have now won six straight for the first time since 2011 and sit at 8-3 on the young season.
Colon scattered six hits while walking none and striking out five. The only run scored on a solo homer from Giancarlo Stanton in the first inning. The ageless wonder is now 3-0 with a 2.25 ERA with an 18/1 K/BB ratio in 20 innings across his first three starts.
After hitting an RBI single on Sunday, Colon also hit a sacrifice fly last night. And he got a really nice piece of it, too. Check out the video below:

Colon currently has more RBI (two) than any pitcher in baseball. Silver Slugger coming?
