Down goes Bartolo! Down goes Bartolo!
A video posted to YouTube shows the veteran pitcher taking a hard fall as he jogged to the clubhouse. The footage was apparently shot following the Mets’ 4-1 win over the Cubs at Citi Field in Game 2 of the NLCS on Sunday night.
Colon, who provided the Mets rotation a savvy veteran presence to go along with all the young fireballers this season, appeared unfazed by the tumble. The 42-year-old hurler popped right back up and kept on going.
The veteran of 18 big-league seasons, Colon won 14 games for the Mets during the regular season. The fan favorite has been bumped to the bullpen as the Mets have gone with the kids in the rotation during the postseason.
He pitched in relief three times during the Mets’ five-game NLDS victory over the Dodgers (3 hits, 2 earned runs in 4 innings of work), but has yet to see action vs. the Cubs.
