Rangers' Bartolo Colon Perfect Through Seven Innings, Finishes With One-Hit Allowed Against Astros

With a ideal game still intact during the top of the eighth inning Sunday, the Texas Rangers right-hander was caught fooling around in the dugout.

Colon lost his ideal 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. He went to an 0-2 count against 10 of the first 18 batters he faced. He was embraced by teammates and coaches upon returning to the dugout.

The 44-year-old veteran finished the game with seven strikeouts, one hit and one run allowed through 7.2 innings.
