Colon working on no-hitter in 8th for Rangers vs Astros

Texas Rangers starting pitcher Bartolo Colon took a flawless game into the eighth inning against the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park.

Colon lost his flawless game with a walk to Carlos Correa to open the eighth inning, and Josh Reddick got Houston's first hit with a double one batter later.

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

The 44-year-old Colon was working on a ideal game for the Texas Rangers before walking Carlos Correa on a 3-1 pitch to start the eighth.

Colon struck out seven and gave up one earned run through 7.2 innings.

Two outs later, Colon was pulled with the score tied at 1. Mitch Moreland also had three hits for the Red Sox, who completed a three-game sweep of the shortened series and improved to a major league-best 13-2 under new manager Alex Cora.

Going into the eighth, Texas led 1-0 on a home run by Robinson Chirinos off Astros ace Justin Verlander in the third, the only hit of the game to that point.

It was the third time in four starts this season he has lasted at least seven innings. Perez is coming off the shortest start by any Texas starter, lasting just three innings and giving up eight runs.
