PHILADELPHIA -- Bartolo Colon moved into an elite club on Friday night.
Daniel Murphy recorded his fifth straight multihit game with two singles for the Mets, who have won 10 of their last 11 games in Philadelphia. New York has outscored Philadelphia 63-32 during those contests.
The 41-year-old Colon joined Pedro Martinez and Juan Marichal as the only Dominican-born pitchers to reach 200 victories.
"I'm really happy to be in that category," Colon said through an interpreter. "I'm expecting a call from those guys."
He gave up one run and six hits, struck out six and walked none.
"It's amazing that he's still able to perform like he does," Mets manager Terry Collins said. "Two hundred wins, that's a lot of wins."
Colon (11-9) didn't allow a batter to reach second base except for Byrd, who led off the seventh with a drive over the wall in left for his 22nd homer. Colon departed after throwing 107 pitches.
"He throws a lot of fastballs but he changes speeds with them making it difficult to gauge the velocity," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said.
Philadelphia's A.J. Burnett (6-12) surrendered 11 hits, tying a season high, resulting in five runs in his third consecutive loss. The right-hander struck out eight and walked two while falling to 0-4 with a 6.66 ERA in his last five starts.
The Mets nearly blew it in the ninth, when Philadelphia scored three runs on three hits.
Chase Utley doubled and Ryan Howard walked against left-hander Dana Eveland. Closer Jenrry Mejia relieved Eveland and Byrd singled to load the bases. Sizemore then lined a two-run double off the wall in right that trimmed New York's lead to 5-3.
"I was praying for the ball to stay in the ballpark," Colon said. "Thanks to Mejia for doing his job and holding his composure on the mound."
"That really saved us," Collins said.
The only spot where Colon struggled was the batter's box, where the historically poor hitter went 0 for 4 with four strikeouts -- two of which came on failed sacrifice attempts. A career .087 hitter entering Friday, Colon's averaged dipped to .043 with 28 strikeouts in 46 at-bats this season.
Murphy is batting .456 in his last 13 games and upped his NL-leading hits total to 144.
Phillies: Three days after returning from a throat infection, outfielder Domonic Brown remained out of the starting lineup, but struck out pinch-hitting in the eighth. Brown missed three games due to the problem but was able to play beginning on Tuesday. He is 0 for 4 with three strikeouts in pinch-hit appearances since his return.
Mets: After experiencing soreness in his right calf during Thursday's outing against Washington, Mejia threw off a flat mound and fielded shags during batting practice on Friday.
Phillies left-hander Cole Hamels (6-6, 2.42 ERA) faces Mets right-hander Dillon Gee (4-4, 3.73 ERA) on Saturday night at Citizens Bank Park, where Gee has struggled mightily. Gee has a 9.56 ERA in seven appearances (six starts) in Philadelphia.
Following the win, the Mets designated outfielder Chris Young for assignment and called up Matt den Dekker from Triple-A Las Vegas. Signed to a one-year, $7.25 million deal in the offseason, Young hit .205 with eight homers and 28 RBIs in 88 games with New York.
Home-plate umpire Mike Winters was drilled in the right forearm by a pitch in the second inning after catcher Ruiz failed to catch Burnett's fastball. The game was delayed for several minutes while Winters received attention from the Phillies trainer. Following the inning, Winters went into the dugout and emerged with a bandage wrap around his forearm and remained in the game.
