BC-BBA-Rangers-Colon-No-Hitter Alert, 186 Colon loses no-hit bid for Rangers in 8th vs AstrosAP Photo TXMW104Eds: APNewsNow.

Texas Rangers starting pitcher Bartolo Colon may have failed in his no-hit bid Sunday night against the Houston Astros, but he made history nonetheless. Updates with Colon walking leadoff hitter in eighth inning.

At 44 years and 326 days old, Big Sexy would have been the oldest pitcher in history to record a ideal game or a no-hitter.

Everyone's favorite 44-year-old athlete put together an wonderful performance in front of a national audience on Sunday Night Baseball, against the defending champions. Still, Colon (44 years old) is the oldest pitcher to have a no-hitter in the eighth inning, according to the Dallas Morning News' Evan Grant. He went to an 0-2 count against 10 of the first 18 batters he faced. A fan favorite all around the majors, he is on his ninth team in the past 11 seasons.

Up to this point, we've had a lot of reassurance and a lot of words from the Prime Minister about this project getting built. It is not clear whether Ottawa's financial and legislative backstops would ensure the pipeline gets built.

Colon ended up with a one-hitter in a 2-0 win at Yankee Stadium.

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

That would prove to be the only hit Verlander would allow through eight innings.
