Colon, who now holds the record for the longest scoreless-innings streak by a pitcher 42 years or older, came within 1 2/3 innings of the Mets team record held by R.A. Dickey. Colon is tied for the third-longest streak in team history with Dwight Gooden and Tom Seaver. Jerry Koosman (31 2/3) is second.
Colon allowed another run on Andrelton Simmons' RBI single before being lifted for Dario Alvarez. The Mets led the rain-delayed game 4-2 going into the eighth.
