Bartolo Colon started this week off with one career milestone and ended it with another. Monday, he passed Hall of Famer and former Mets ace Pedro Martinez for the second-most wins (220) in MLB history by a Dominican player. Saturday night, while the Mets were playing the San Diego Padres, he came up with his first hit of this season. And it was a big one.
Colon stepped in the batter's box and the 42-year-old showed that he has a big bat—and not just a big belly— that he can use. He went yard smacking this one out the park.
Big Sexy is now the oldest player in MLB history to hit his first career home run.
