Final Score: Mets 3, Mariners 2 — Colon near perfect, Mets close enough

New, comments

Bartolo Colon set down the first 20 batters he faced, while his teammates scored just enough runs and staved off some late charges from the Mariners to take two of three in Seattle

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The Mets plated the first run of the game on a Daniel Murphy RBI double in the opening inning, then expanded that lead on a Juan Lagares sac fly in the sixth and a David Wright run-scoring single in the seventh. For most of the game, three runs appeared to be more than enough as Bartolo Colon continued his traditional dominance at Safeco Field by retiring the first 20 batters he faced while barely breaking a sweat. Dreams of perfection were doused by a two-out single by Robinson Cano in the seventh, and dreams of a win were soured by a two-run Seattle rally in the eighth. Jeurys Familia restored order by recording the last two outs in that inning, while Jenrry Mejia earned a shaky save, allowing two singles but stranding both to preserve the win.
