The most funny and awesome part of the game was when Colon delivered a key RBI single.

Before the game, Terry Collins said that injured relievers Bobby Parnell and Vic Black will begin their rehab assignments soon.

The Mets could simply not have afforded to start 2-4, says the Post.

The Daily News as well decided to focus on how much worse this first week of baseball could have been.

The Daily News found a doctor in Manhattan who once was Mr. Met! Did he get threatened by secret service, though?

Around the National League East

Just like the Mets, the Nationals avoided a sweep against a projected division bottom-dweller.

Miami continued its slow start with an 8-5 loss to the Rays.

Meanwhile, Henderson Alvarez is having an MRI done on his pitching elbow.

Around Major League Baseball

The Astros won a thriller over the rival Rangers thanks to George Springer and this ridiculous catch.

An innocent RBI double by Albert Pujols nearly resulted in a brawl during the Royals vs. Angels game.

Barry Bonds is excited for Alex Rodriguez pass Willie Mays for fourth place on the all-time home run list, but the Yankees are going to pretend that it doesn't happen.

Miguel Cabrera was off to a torrid start even before he hit his first two home runs of the season yesterday in Cleveland.

This date in Mets history
