I like the Colon Little Leaguer attempted catch before it hit his potato chip dip holder.

Gleyber Torres was 3 months old when Bartolo Colon made his debut -- and on Monday he homered off him

Colon said he learned his work ethic from his pet donkey, Pancho, whom he used to ride to the baseball field.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Bartolo Colon has always admired Hall of Fame pitcher and fellow countryman Juan Marichal.

Now the 45-year-old portly right-hander known as "Big Sexy" has matched the "Dominican Dandy" for the most wins by a pitcher born in the Dominican Republic.

Colon got his 243rd career victory after working five innings Wednesday night as the Texas Rangers beat the Oakland Athletics 8-2.

"It's a little different tonight because I tied the mark of a Hall of Famer. I feel very proud and honored to do that," Colon said through a translator. "It means a lot. He's Dominican and the first guy from the Dominican to become a Hall of Famer."

LOS ANGELES -- Texas Rangers right-hander Bartolo Colon recorded his 2,500th career strikeout during Tuesday night's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Colon, 45, reached the milestone when he struck out second baseman Max Muncy in the first inning.

Colon is the 34th pitcher in MLB history with 2,500 strikeouts. He is tied with Hall of Famer Juan Marichal for most wins by a pitcher from the Dominican Republic with 243.
