The Mets (30-37) got back in the win column Friday night, defeating the San Diego Padres (28-39) by the score of 6-2 tonight at Citi Field.

Bartolo Colon started the game for the Mets and earned the win. Colon got off to a shaky start in the first inning before escaping, but would surrender two runs in the second inning when he served up a two-run homer off the bat of Rene Rivera. The 41-year old Colon would settle down from there and pitch flat out brilliantly, retiring 18 straight Padres at one point.

The Mets would get one back in the second, when Taylor Teagarden plated Bobby Abreu on an RBI single off Padres starter Andrew Cashner.

New York would go ahead for good in the fourth inning after RBI doubles by Lucas Duda and Matt den Dekker.

Josh Edgin and Vic Black combined to escape the 8th inning after Colon allowed a leadoff double. Jeurys Familia would pitch a scoreless ninth.

Abreu, getting the start in right field had a huge day, going 4 for 4 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored.

David Wright‘s struggles continued, as he went 0 for 3 at the plate, but did manage a sacrifice fly. His average has now dropped to .267.

These two teams will face off again Saturday afternoon, with first pitch scheduled for 4:10 PM ET. Zack Wheeler (2-6, 4.19 ERA) will get the ball for the Mets, and he will square off against Jesse Hahn (0-1, 9.82 ERA)
