Bartolo Colon seems to have corrected what bothered him in the first and is keeping the ball down. He pitched around the muff by Wilmer Flores, who clearly tried to rush the play on Ichiro Suzuki’s grounder.
Thanks to a RBI hit from Lucas Duda, he has tamed the Marlins.
By the way, Curtis Granderson is heating up and doing more than drawing walks.
Mets 3, Marlins 2 (6th)

It hasn’t been a good start for Bartolo Colon, who gave up a two-run homer to Giancarlo Stanton. Quite simply, the ball was crushed.
Colon struggled with his control and was getting his pitches up. The pitch to Colon was belt high and out over the plate.
Michael Cuddyer, who is back in the line-up, hit a two-run homer for the Mets in the first.
Mets 2, Marlins 2 (2nd)
