Colon loses flawless game in eighth inning

Rangers rally from 5-0 deficit to beat Astros

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.

The 44-year-old Rangers pitcher was ideal through seven innings against the Astros before walking Carlos Correa on a 3-1 pitch to leadoff the eighth inning.

Opposing fans in Houston gave Colon a standing ovation, and he clapped his bare hand softly against the outside of his glove.

Darrell Wallace Jr., who also decided to make a stop under the caution, was penalized during the stops for speeding on pit road. Seven races into the season, he has a pair of top-threes (third at Las Vegas and runner-up at California's Auto Club Speedway).

Colon threw 96 pitches, 66 for strikes.

Two outs later, Colon was removed with the score tied at 1. He allowed one earned run on one hit and struck out seven batters. Despite Colon being a fan favorite in Flushing, the Mets didn't consider bringing Big Sexy back to Citi Field.

In a true pitchers' duel, Astros ace Justin Verlander had allowed just one run off one hit with 11 strikeouts through eight innings.

Keone Kela (2-0) worked a scoreless ninth for the win. He was embraced by teammates and coaches upon returning to the dugout.
