Pretty cool that he did it against Cleveland.
Friday in Cleveland, Mets RHP Bartolo Colon won his 219th game, matching Pedro Martinez for second all-time among Dominican-born pitchers.
He allowed two runs and eight hits and one walk, while striking out five, in 5.1 innings.
"It means a lot," Colon said through an interpreter his team's 6-5 win. "Pedro Martinez, back in my homeland, the Dominican Republic, is a special person, and to do it here in Cleveland is something special for me. First and foremost, I want to thank the Cleveland Indians organization for the opportunity."
Colon, 43, made his big-league debut with the Indians in 1997. Since then, he's thrown 2,993 for eight teams.
"In the first inning, I felt a little nervous," Colon added. "But, then throughout the course of the game, I settled down."
Colon is now 24 wins away from matching Juan Marichal for the most victories by a Dominican-born pitcher.
