Gerrit Cole

The 44-year-old Colon was working on a flawless game for the Texas Rangers before walking Carlos Correa on a 3-1 pitch to start the eighth.

If Colon is able to hold the Astros hitless the rest of the way, he'll become the first Ranger to throw a no-hitter since Kenny Rogers tossed a flawless game against the California Angels on July 28, 1994.

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

Opposing fans in Houston gave Colon a standing ovation, and he clapped his bare hand softly against the outside of his glove. Colon is at 83 pitches.

The beefy Colon, a fan favorite all around the majors, is on his ninth team in the last 11 seasons.

Prior to Sunday, Colon's longest no-hit bid throughout his 21-year career came with the Indians on September 18, 2000, when he held the Yankees hitless for 7.1 innings.

The Rangers lead 1-0 courtesy a solo home run from catcher Robinson Chirinos.

Kenny Rogers threw Texas' most recent no-hitter, in July 1994.
