On The Board
Bartolo Colón (NYM)
In his nineteenth season he became the oldest player (42 years) in MLB history to launch the first home run of his career and is the third in club history to hit a homer with at least that age. The New York Mets' pitcher is the fifth oldest pitcher to get the ball out of the park and the 6,195th player in history to hit one longball. Colon has pitched in 481 games (472 starts) in the Majors and is the leader among active pitchers in wins and shutouts.
Extra: Aaron Hill (Milwaukee Brewers) connected on three home runs including one with the bases loaded in the tenth frame and drove in 7 runs to give the victory to his team. They are the most for him in a game and tied the franchise marks in both categories. Only 48 times a player has hit three home runs including a grand slam in a game, but Hill is the only to launch it with the bases loaded in extra innings. Seven runs scored by Milwaukee in the tenth episode is a new record for the club in extra innings.
