Colon throwing flawless game vs. Astros through 7 innings

Texas Rangers starting pitcher Bartolo Colon may have failed in his no-hit bid Sunday night against the Houston Astros, but he made history nonetheless.

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

Carlos Correa, Josh Reddick, and Yuli Gurriel are scheduled to hit in the bottom of the eighth.

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. In the third inning, Colon struck out Marwin Gonzalez and Derek Fisher to keep his ideal game bid alive.

Colon finished the game with a line of 7.2 innings pitched, seven strikeouts, one hit, one walk and one earned run.

Verlander allowed just one run on a solo shot from Robinson Chirinos in the third inning. It's a good thing to, as he delivered a two-run double in the 10th inning that proved to be the difference.
