Colon would ultimately lose the flawless game bid, and the no-hitter, in the eighth.

Still, it was an absolutely incredible effort against the best lineup in baseball, and from a 44-year-old pitcher! Colon lost his no-hit bid the following at-bat when Josh Reddick smacked a double to right field on an 0-2 count.

Opposing fans in Houston gave Colon a standing ovation, and he clapped his bare hand softly against the outside of his glove. Nolan Ryan was also 44 when he threw a no-hitter, but over 150 days younger.

Correa ended up coming around to score to tie the game at 1-1, and Colon left after 7⅔ innings and 96 pitches while lowering his ERA on the season to 1.45. The Rangers would go on to beat the Astros, 3-1, in 10 innings.

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