I'm not sure he can throw enough pitches even if he does stay clean. Then again, I guess there's no pitch count for that guy, you just let him empty the tank then retire if he could make it.

Can't imagine anyone going clean on this lineup though.

I don't give a **** about the hits. I'm just hoping for a win.

I'm sure there will be a HR barrage soon

His command is spot on. That backdoor and running fastball are nasty.

Astro's beat up on an old man and ran him out of the game. I hope they're proud of themselves. Colon had a nice night. We'll see what the rest of the team has.

It's fun to watch two good pitchers feed off of each other when they're feeling it. One works quick within the zone, so does the other. Get a good home plate ump to give them good calls on good pitches and before you know it you're in the bottom of the 8th and the game has flown by.

That's good baseball.

Colon has been just about the only upside for this pitching staff so far this season he has been pitching good in relief!

Pretty amazing that 44-year-old Bartolo Colon was throwing a no-hitter in the 8th. Great pick-up. And glad to see Jake Diekman back healthy after what he's been dealing with. And Chirinos accounted for every run despite getting beat up just about every way possible.

A no hitter AND a perfect game into the 8th. That's wild for a dude his age.

I only got in on this thread today because things have been super busy, but it was great to see it stay mostly positive about the baseball, and not the BS.

I fully expect the stros to get the better of us for a while, and I'm not opposed to any GOOD smack talk, but baseball talk is more fun when it's about the game.

Hope the stros go dance all over the angels, moving forward. I said it last year, and it remains true...that is a terrifying lineup!

Been out at kids baseball all weekend..but followed a little on phone,... Rangers took that series.. and had a Colon sounded like he was dealin.
Cant Hit Cant win...
the youngsters gotta get consistent in the hitting ...

Id like to think they are getting that midyear thing they had last year out of the way early

congrats Rangers

Great game to watch - two pitchers dictating pace and keeping it moving. Throwing strikes and not taking hours in between pitches.

I think ol big sexyís stuff had more to do with that than there hitting abilities. As soon as he lost command and the late movement they started putting the ball in play.

Colon pitched his arse off.

Nothing he threw was straight or flat until the 8th inning. He hit a wall.

Verlander pitched better than Colon I thought. Colon was getting a W I D E and L O W strike zone....one cheap *** hr to Crawford boxes....great game to watch..

Astros bats are struggling now....last in AL with RISP at .150- that wont last but dang if their pitching hasn't been as dominate as it has they would have a losing record right now.
Cole had 14 K- no decision
Morton had 12 K- no decision
Verlander had 11 K- no decision

I would venture to say that has never been done before in 3 straight games

Of course you did..... The ump was pretty much money all night until the last inning. Many made the same comment in this thread...Astros fans as well. Including zztex who dies a little inside every time he has to give a Ranger a compliment.

The ump did have a few questionable calls late AFTER Colon left but he was probably ready to get out of there. Colon had a perfect game through 7 against this Astros' offense and you think Verlander pitched obviously better against this ****ty Rangers' offense?.. Come on now... take off those orange colored glasses.

They both pitched great games.

And that "cheap *** HR" was a hanging mistake that Chirinos promptly put over the left field fence. The only thing cheap about it was the seat it landed in.
