Colon walked Carlos Correa on five pitches to lead off the eighth inning.

The right-hander has thrown 76 pitches and will take a bid for a ideal game into the seventh inning at Minute Maid Park.

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. Reddick then lined an 0-2 delivery down the right-field line, putting runners at second and third. Still, Colon (44 years old) is the oldest pitcher to have a no-hitter in the eighth inning, according to the Dallas Morning News' Evan Grant.

Colon was masterful with his comeback two-seamer on the night, and didn't really throw much else but the fastball. A fan favorite all around the majors, he is on his ninth team in the last 11 seasons.

The Rangers gave Colon his only run of support in the top of the third inning when Robinson Chirinos hit a solo home run off of Astros starter Justin Verlander.

In the dugout, Colon's teammates left him all alone on the bench - adhering to traditional superstition - as he grinned and tossed a ball to himself.
