BC-BBA-Rangers-Astros, 223 Colon flawless into 8th, Rangers beat Astros 3-1 in 10AP Photo TXMW104, TXMW107, TXMW118, TXMW116, TXMW119, TXMW109, TXMW110, TXMW108, TXMW107, TXMW101Eds: APNewsNow.

Colon lost his flawless game with a walk to Carlos Correa to open the eighth inning, and Josh Reddick got Houston's first hit with a double one batter later.

Robinson Chirinos homered and drove in three runs on Sunday, powering the Rangers to a 3-1 victory over the Astros in 10 innings. Reddick then lined an 0-2 delivery down the right-field line, putting runners at second and third. Two outs later, he was removed with the score tied at 1. Randy Johnson, 40, is the oldest to throw a flawless game. He was embraced by teammates and coaches upon returning to the dugout.

The 31-metre drop killed the women, both 39, and their children Markis Hart , 19; Jeremiah Hart , 14; and Abigail Hart , 14. The mother said she took a closer look and saw that three of Heaven's front teeth were missing and her top lip bruised.

Still, it was an absolutely incredible effort against the best lineup in baseball, and from a 44-year-old pitcher!

Colon's longest no-hit bid came with the Cleveland Indians on September 18, 2000, when he held the New York Yankees hitless for 7 1/3 innings. Despite Colon being a fan favorite in Flushing, the Mets didn't consider bringing Big Sexy back to Citi Field.

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