Texas Rangers right-hander Bartolo Colon has a flawless game through seven innings Sunday against the reigning World Series champion Houston Astros. Updates with Colon walking leadoff hitter in eighth inning.

Nolan Ryan, who threw a record seven no-hitters, threw one in 1991 at the age of 44 years, 90 days, and also threw one a year earlier.

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.
