Meet the Mets
History was made Saturday night in Petco Park, as Bartolo Colon helped power the Mets to victory in a major way. Sure, he pitched six-and-two-thirds solid innings, but Colon's two-run home run in the second inning stole the show. He's the oldest player to ever hit his first career home run, and it proved to be the eventual game-winner in a 6-3 Mets win against the Padres. Yoenis Cespedes, David Wright, and Michael Conforto also all chipped in with home runs of their own
