The Minnesota Twins' 12-5 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks in Sunday's matchup was more than just another regular-season game in the dog days of summer; it was history for Bartolo Colon. According to Jonah Birenbaum of The Score, the 44-year-old became just the 18th pitcher to notch a victory against all 30 Major League Baseball teams since the league expanded in 1998. While the win against the Diamondbacks eluded Colon throughout his career until Sunday, it wasn't for a lack of impressive pitching. Birenbaum noted the pitcher posted a solid 3.42 ERA in 23.2 innings against Arizona in his previous four starts against the National League West representative but never earned the win.
