Meet the Mets
Bartolo Colon had his scoreless innings streak snapped at 31 in Atlanta last night, but the Mets prevailed anyway thanks in part to an RBI single by the man himself. Kevin Plawecki and Juan Uribe pitched in with three RBI a piece to help New York defeat the Braves 7-2.
Before the game we got some scary news, as pitching coach Dan Warthen was hospitalized with an accelerated heart beat. Fortunately, it sounds like Warthen is going to be okay, though he'll likely be away from the ballpark tonight.
Despite Colon's recent dominance, he's not a lock for the postseason rotation.
The Mets were just lucky to get the game in last night, as Turner Field looked like a swimming pool around 7:00 p.m.
