MIAMI — Bartolo Colon couldn’t join an exclusive New York Mets club.

Colon’s bid to be the first five-game winner of 2015 was thwarted, as was his chance at joining Dwight Gooden and Pedro Martinez as just the third pitcher to post a 5-0 April for the Mets.

Ichiro Suzuki hit a three-run home run, Giancarlo Stanton homered and finished with three RBIs and the Miami Marlins beat the Mets 7-3 on April 29.

“I thought I pitched a good game and the team behind me gave me support,” Colon said. “They scored runs for me. Too bad I couldn’t pick them up when I needed to.”

It was the fourth loss on a six-game trip for the Mets, who are 10-0 at home this season and 5-7 on the road.

“You can’t get down because you’re 2-4 on the road trip,” Mets Manager Terry Collins said. “You pick yourself up and go home.”

In the eighth and with Miami leading 4-3, all Suzuki wanted was to drive home an insurance run.

He outdid his own expectations. His homer — his second since August 2013 — blew the game open.

“Just to see my teammates so happy and the fans so happy, I was very moved,” Ichiro said through a translator. “I almost cried. Just very moved.”

Dee Gordon had two hits and his sacrifice fly in the seventh put the Marlins ahead for good, adding to a night where he raised his average to .409 and Miami won for the seventh time in its last eight games after that dreadful 3-11 start.

Sam Dyson (1-0) worked two perfect innings of relief after starter Mat Latos left in the fifth with a left hamstring strain.

“These guys have always responded,” Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. “Shows a lot about the character on this ballclub.”

Colon (4-1) allowed nine hits and four runs in 6 2-3 innings. Michael Cuddyer hit a two-run homer and Lucas Duda drove in another run for the Mets, who wasted leads of 2-0 and 3-2.

Adeiny Hechavarria led off the seventh with a double for Miami, eventually scoring on Gordon’s fly to center.

Latos led off the fifth with a single, and that’s where his night ended. After a quick conversation at first base Redmond decided to make a change and Latos limped off the field, then banged his helmet on a dugout wall in frustration.

At least the Marlins made his hit count.

Donovan Solano pinch-ran for Latos, moved to second on Gordon’s second hit, took third on a double-play ball and scored when Stanton was credited with an infield single that tied the game at 3-all.

Cuddyer and Stanton each hit two-run homers in the first. The Mets went up 3-2 in the third when Curtis Granderson hit a leadoff double and scored after two groundouts.

“There’s no concern,” Cuddyer said. “We played well here. We just got beat.”
