Thanks to eight innings of one-run ball against the Phillies on Friday night (NY 5, PHI 4), Mets right-hander Bartolo Colon picked up the 200th win of his career. He is the third pitcher from the Dominican Republic to win 200 games in MLB.

Colon, 41, trails only Juan Marichal (243) and Pedro Martinez (219) in wins by a Dominican-born pitcher. He is under contract next season and has a shot at passing Pedro. Colon is behind only Tim Hudson (213) and CC Sabathia (208) on the active wins leaderboard.

In 23 starts and 154 1/3 innings this season, Colon is 11-9 with a 3.97 ERA. He is 200-137 with a 3.94 ERA in his career. Colon won a career-high 21 games with the Angels en route to winning the 2005 AL Cy Young award.
