Rangers' Bartolo Colon Perfect Through Seven Innings, Finishes With One-Hit Allowed Against Astros
16 April, 2018, 13:11
Bartolo Colon, who turns 45 next month, flirted with history Sunday night, taking a flawless game into the eighth inning against the World Series champion Houston Astros.
Colon was pulled two outs later after giving up a SAC fly to lose his shutout as well.
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. The 44-year-old Colon has struck out seven and thrown 76 pitches, 53 for strikes.
While nobody expected Colon to flirt with perfection Sunday night, his work on the mound continued what has been a solid start to his Rangers career. The Rangers would go on to beat the Astros, 3-1, in 10 innings. Reddick then lined an 0-2 delivery down the right-field line, putting runners at second and third and prompting a standing ovation from opposing fans in Houston.
Colon signed a 1-year, minor league deal with the Rangers this past offseason. He finished with a one-hitter in a 2-0 win at Yankee Stadium.
In a true pitchers' duel, Astros ace Justin Verlander had allowed just one run off one hit with 11 strikeouts through eight innings.
