Colon loses ideal game in eighth inning

Texas Rangers starting pitcher Bartolo Colon took a ideal game into the eighth inning against the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park.

Colon has struck out seven on 83 pitches.

Bartolo Colon lost his bid for a no-hitter against the World Series champion Houston Astros when Josh Reddick doubled with nobody out in the eighth inning Sunday night. A fan favorite all around the majors, he is on his ninth team in the last 11 seasons.

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

Nolan Ryan (44 years, 90 days) is the oldest player to throw a no-hitter and Randy Johnson (40 years, 252 days) is the oldest player to throw a ideal game.

Colon finished the game with a line of 7.2 innings pitched, seven strikeouts, one hit, one walk and one earned run.

Moments earlier, Colon's teammates left him all alone on the bench - adhering to traditional superstition - as he grinned and tossed a ball to himself. It was the third time in four starts this season he has lasted at least seven innings. Jose Pirela was a home run short of the cycle and had three RBIs for the Padres, who have won five of seven.

Rangers: LHP Martin Perez (1-1, 11.88 ERA) will make his third start of the season Monday against the Rays.

Wilmer Flores hit a game-winning home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning and NY beat Milwaukee to improve the best start in team history to 12-2.

Astros: LHP Dallas Keuchel (0-2, 4.20) starts a four-game series Monday at Seattle. Oakland avoided a series sweep as Manaea (2-2) gave up just two hits and struck out four. Keuchel has never opened 0-3.
