Colon throwing flawless game vs. Astros through 7 innings

Texas Rangers starting pitcher Bartolo Colon did not allow a baserunner through seven innings against the defending champion Houston Astros on Sunday night.

Colon was pulled two outs later after giving up a SAC fly to lose his shutout as well.

A leadoff walk to Carlos Correa and a Josh Reddick double ended the bid by Colon, who would have become the oldest pitcher to throw a no-hitter.

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. Reddick then lined an 0-2 delivery down the right-field line, putting runners at second and third.

Colon signed a 1-year, minor league deal with the Rangers this past offseason.

On his way from the mound to the dugout, the good-humored Colon gestured toward Reddick with a quick flick of his hand.

The beefy Colon - he has added about 100 pounds since his rookie season - struck out seven.

Colon has played for 11 teams, including the Cleveland Indians, Montreal Expos, Chicago White Sox, New York Yankees, Los Angeles Angels, Oakland Athletics, Boston Red Sox, New York Mets and Atlanta Braves.

The Rangers lead 1-0 courtesy a solo home run from catcher Robinson Chirinos.

Kenny Rogers threw Texas' most recent no-hitter, in July 1994.
