Starting Pitcher Bartolo Colon Makes MLB History Bartolo Colon has become the winningest Latin American-born pitcher in MLB history. Colon, a native of the Dominican Republic, notched his 246th career win, following the Texas Rangers’ 11-4 victory over the Seattle Mariners. Tuesday night's win was also Colon's first since June 30 against the White Sox. Colon, who is pitching in his 21st season at the age of 45, passed Nicaragua's Dennis Martinez with the victory. Colon says he next wants to set the record for innings pitched in the MLB by Dominicans. As of now, he has thrown 3,445 2/3 innings and is just over 60 away from breaking Juan Marichal's record.
