Bartolo Colon went eight innings for the Mets tonight, allowing just one run on six hits, walking none and striking out six on his way to career win number 200. Dana Eveland and Jenrry Mejia conspired to make a ballgame of it, transforming a 5-1 ninth-inning lead into a 5-4 nail-biter. With the tying run on third, Mejia struck out pinch hitter Reid Breignac looking to end the game.
The Mets offense battered and abused Phillies starter A.J. Burnett, racking up five runs on eleven hits through six innings, capped by Travis d'Arnaud's eighth homer of the season in the fifth inning. Curtis Granderson, Daniel Murphy, and Wilmer Flores each went 2-for-4 with an RBI, and even David Wright got in on the action with a 2-for-5 night.
