And though his no-hitter and shutout disappeared in a three-batter stretch, the Texas Rangers at least made sure Colon's efforts didn't happen in a losing cause. DH Destin Hood, ejected in the opener after being called out on strikes, had two hits and scored two runs in the second game, a 5-4 win. With AP Photos.Bartolo Colon has lost his bid for a no-hitter against the World Series champion Houston Astros when Josh Reddick doubled with nobody out in the eighth inning.

Colon was pulled two outs later after giving up a SAC fly to lose his shutout as well.

A pair of Hawaii's Major Leaguers caught barrel like they were back home in the 50th state Saturday, as former University of Hawai'i star Greg Garcia and Mid-Pacific alumnus Isiah Kiner-Falefa both hit home runs. He owns a ridiculous 1.45 ERA, 0.70 WHIP and 17/2 K/BB ratio across 18 ⅔ innings of work this season. 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. Texas is 1-8 in the last nine meetings between these two teams 1-10 in their last 11 games versus a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15. The Astros were last victims of a no-hitter when the Giants' Matt Cain threw a flawless game on June 13, 2012. I like Houston here, but the under looks pretty good as well due to the thick line.
