Rangers-Colon-No-Hitter Alert,1st Ld-Writethru

Rangers overcome dominant Cole but not their own mistakes

Rangers overcome dominant Cole but not their own mistakes

Colon finally lost the flawless game when he walked Astros' young star Carlos Correa to lead off the bottom of the eighth.

Update (10:04 PM ET): The flawless game bid is over, but the no-hit bid is still alive.

At 44 years and 326 days old, Big Sexy would have been the oldest pitcher in history to record a flawless game or a no-hitter.

That would prove to be the only hit Verlander would allow through eight innings. In the eighth, Colon walked Astros slugger Carlos Correa on five pitches before allowing a sharp double to Josh Reddick to break up the no-hit bid. Not that it matters. He has struck out seven batters in the process.

If Colon is able to hold the Astros hitless the rest of the way, he'll become the first Ranger to throw a no-hitter since Kenny Rogers tossed a ideal game against the California Angels on July 28, 1994.

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.

Everyone's favorite 44-year-old athlete put together an incredible performance in front of a national audience on Sunday Night Baseball, against the defending champions.
