Colon loses flawless game in eighth inning

Gerrit Cole Rangers' Bartolo Colon Perfect Through Seven Innings, Finishes With One-Hit Allowed Against Astros
Frederick Owens | 16 April, 2018, 13:37

Bartolo Colon made a bid for history on Sunday, carrying a bid for a flawless game into the eighth inning against the Astros. Houston tied the game up 1-1, and in the process, Colon was pulled for reliever Alex Claudio, who retired the side, the game tied up at 1-1.

Colon signed a minor-league contract with Texas in February after finishing with a 7-14 record and 6.48 ERA between the Atlanta Braves and Minnesota Twins previous year.

Chirinos' hit off Hector Rondon (1-1) made a victor of Keone Kela (2-0), who escaped a two-on, two-out jam in the ninth.

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.

Twenty-three-year-old Biebs is reported to have told the man, "Go fuck yourself", before intervening to get him off the woman. TMZ reports that Justin Bieber allegedly punched a man and threw him against a wall.


However, Colon's attempt at history ended in the eighth inning.

Yuli Gurriel cashed in Correa with a sacrifice fly to center, and Marwin Gonzalez lined out to center before Rangers manager Jeff Banister hooked Colon.

Colon struck out seven and gave up one earned run through 7.2 innings. Houston is obviously good all the way around, and with Verlander making the start they'll be in a nice position. His only mistake was a third-inning curveball over the middle of the plate that Chirinos popped into the left field stands for his second homer of the year. LF-DH Willie Calhoun had a double in each game, extending his hitting streak to eight games.RF Scott Heineman had a two-run double in the opener, a 7-4 loss.
