Rangers-Colon-No-Hitter Alert

Colon throwing perfect game vs. Astros through 7 innings

The 44-year-old Rangers pitcher was flawless through seven innings against the Astros before walking Carlos Correa on a 3-1 pitch to leadoff the eighth inning.

Colon took a flawless game into the eighth inning before doling out a walk and then allowing a double to Josh Reddick.

Colon still had the no-hitter intact, but lost it on the next batter when Josh Reddick doubled down the right field line.

In a true pitchers' duel, Astros ace Justin Verlander had allowed just one run off one hit with 11 strikeouts through eight innings.


Colon struck out seven and gave up one earned run through 7.2 innings. Two outs later, he was pulled with the score tied at 1. A fan favorite all around the majors, the beefy right-hander nicknamed "Big Sexy" is on his ninth team in his last 11 seasons. It's a good thing to, as he delivered a two-run double in the 10th inning that proved to be the difference. That was the lone hit in the game until Reddick doubled. He struck out seven and ended up with a no-decision.

Nolan Ryan (44 years, 90 days) is the oldest player to throw a no-hitter and Randy Johnson (40 years, 252 days) is the oldest player to throw a flawless game.

Colon's longest no-hit bid came with Cleveland on September 18, 2000, when he held the New York Yankees hitless for 7 1/3 innings.

Wilmer Flores hit a game-winning home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning and NY beat Milwaukee to improve the best start in team history to 12-2. Jose Pirela was a home run short of the cycle and had three RBIs for the Padres, who have won five of seven. Keuchel has never opened 0-3.
