HOUSTON (AP) - Bartolo Colon carried a ideal game into the eighth inning and Robinson Chirinos drove in all three runs for the Texas Rangers during their 3-1 victory over the Houston Astros in 10 innings Sunday night. Colon lost his no-hit bid the following at-bat when Josh Reddick smacked a double to right field on an 0-2 count.

Opposing fans in Houston gave Colon a standing ovation, and he clapped his bare hand softly against the outside of his glove.

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. Despite Colon being a fan favorite in Flushing, the Mets didn't consider bringing Big Sexy back to Citi Field.

Keone Kela (2-0) worked a scoreless ninth for the win. He allowed two earned runs over 11 innings in his first three appearances (one start).

In the dugout, Colon's teammates left him all alone on the bench - adhering to traditional superstition - as he grinned and tossed a ball to himself.
