Rangers-Colon-Perfect Game Alert

Share

With a flawless game still intact during the top of the eighth inning Sunday, the Texas Rangers right-hander was caught fooling around in the dugout. Colon finally lost the ideal game when he walked Astros' young star Carlos Correa to lead off the bottom of the eighth. Colon lost his no-hit bid the following at-bat when Josh Reddick smacked a double to right field on an 0-2 count.

The 44-year-old veteran finished the game with seven strikeouts, one hit and one run allowed through 7.2 innings.

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

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