Mets starter Bartolo Colon looks to extend his 16-inning scoreless streak on Saturday in the second game of a weekend series at Marlins Park, while Miami's Brad Hand will be seeking a bounceback effort.
Colon will pitch on regular rest, taking the rotation slot of Noah Syndergaard as the Mets monitor the rookie's innings. After a rough outing on Aug. 21 (seven earned runs in 3 2/3 innings), the 42-year-old Colon has put together three straight scoreless appearances, tossing eight shutout innings in his last start on Monday against the Phillies.
