The 45-year-old right-hander retired second baseman Max Muncy in the first inning on Tuesday night.
That made Colon the 34th pitcher in history to reach the 2,500th plateau, according to Elias Sports Bureau.
He is tied with Hall of Famer Juan Marichal for most wins by a pitcher from the Dominican Republic with 243.
