With the Mets down just one run in the fifth inning,Terry Collins opted to let Bartolo Colon hit for himself -- the pitcher who went nine years between RBIs before managing one in his last start April 12, the pitcher with just 13 hits in 18 big league seasons, the pitcher, who at age 41, seemingly never stops surprising.

The Mets took the first of a four-game series with the Marlins, 7-5, on Thursday by a margin of two runs and just a few inches. Just a few inches closer down the barrel, and maybe J.T.

4/15/2015 | Mets gain confidence in first game without Wright

In a way, Wednesday marked the beginning of the rest of the year for the Mets.
