Here are three takeaways from Friday’s Mets win over the Marlins, their sixth straight victory…

Bartolo was sensational again

Bartolo Colon has made three starts this season, and each one has been impressive. The lines:

6 IP, 1 ER
7 IP, 3 ER
7 IP, 1 ER

On Friday against the Marlins, Colon was in control the entire night – with his fastball again ticking a bit higher than it did most times last season. Colon’s only blemish was the solo homer he gave up to Giancarlo Stanton in the first inning.

With his seven stellar innings on Friday, Colon now has an 18:1 K/BB ratio this season.

Aside from his prowess on the mound, Colon contributed with the bat on Friday for the second time this season, lifting a sacrifice fly to left-center to tie the game, 1-1, in the bottom of the fifth.
