Happy birthday, Bartbino! 'Big Sexy' Colon hits the big 4-3 (The Associated Press)

Bartolo Colon will casually flip a baseball back and forth from bare hand to black glove, spinning it by the seams high off his fingertips as the next young hitter - perhaps 20 years his junior - struts toward home plate with serious intentions. Baseball's ageless ambassador of fun, Colon turned 43 on Tuesday a few hours after pitching the Mets to a 7-1 win at Washington.

Mets-Nationals Preview (The Associated Press)

It's been an up-and-down week for the New York Mets that has included solid pitching and a four-game win streak, the loss of a big bat in the middle of their lineup and one of their aces being booed off the field in an ugly loss to a division rival. Harvey (3-6, 5.77 ERA) won the NL's Comeback Player award in 2015 by going 13-8 with a 2.71 ERA in his return from Tommy John surgery, but after helping the Mets (26-18) make a run to the World Series, his struggles in 2016 have been hard to explain. The results have been mixed for Harvey, who has posted three quality starts but has also been very shaky at times, particularly in his previous outing.

Nats' Gonzalez has worst outing of season in loss to Mets (The Associated Press)

Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez felt as though nothing he threw had anything behind it, and the New York Mets took advantage. Gonzalez was roughed up for seven runs and 10 hits in five innings as Washington lost to the Mets 7-1 Monday night in the series opener between the top two teams in the NL East. The left-hander's worst outing of the season came in his first time throwing to catcher Wilson Ramos since September, but Gonzalez (3-2) took the blame.

No Duda, no problem: Mets find power stroke, beat Nationals (The Associated Press)

Bartolo Colon's back was bothering him enough that he told New York Mets manager Terry Collins he wouldn't be able to hit another memorable home run. David Wright, Yoenis Cespedes and Neil Walker connected on the day slugger Lucas Duda went on the disabled list, leading the Mets past the Washington Nationals 7-1 Monday night. With Duda out at least four to six weeks with a stress fracture in his lower back, the Mets are missing a serious threat.

Mets' Duda out long term with stress fracture in lower back (The Associated Press)

New York Mets first baseman Lucas Duda is out at least four to six weeks with a stress fracture in his lower back, a significant blow to the defending National League champions. Manager Terry Collins expects Duda to be back this season, but cautioned that four to six weeks was the minimum absence with the same injury that David Wright suffered in 2011. There's no official timetable, but Duda won't be able to do baseball-related activities for some time.
