Bartolo Colon, accidental run producer

His swing is ugly but it got the job done. Sort of.

Bartolo Colon doesn't have a hit yet this year. He might never get one with the Mets. He helped a run score in Wednesday's start, though, and did it Colon style.

Bonus: his helmet almost falls off and the bouncing wild pitch nearly beans him in the head. It's even more beautiful up close:

Both the Mets and Pirates broadcasts were showing so many replays of Colon's swing and the run scoring that they missed all but the very end of his second swing-and-miss. Don't worry, they got the third.

Colon would pitch 7.1 scoreless, so the runs scored on his at-bat held up for the win. He finished 0-for-3 on these two at-bats:

But more importantly he explained why he carries his bat to first-base, like so:

AWWWW THAT'S THE CUTEST THING WE'VE EVER HEARD. WE LOVE YOU BARTOLO COLON KEEP ON BATTING FOREVER. (Colon is now 0-for-17 on the year with 10 strikeouts.)
