Rangers-Colon-Perfect Game Alert,2nd Ld-Writethru

Colon lost his no-hit bid the following at-bat when Josh Reddick smacked a double to right field on an 0-2 count. In the third inning, Colon struck out Marwin Gonzalez and Derek Fisher to keep his ideal game bid alive.

Update (10:04 PM ET): The flawless game bid is over, but the no-hit bid is still alive. Verlander has fanned nine through seven innings. He got George Springer and Alex Bregman to ground out, then Jose Altuve lined out to center field to end the inning. He struck out 11 batters, but 44-year-old Colon was better. Not that it matters.

Texas Rangers catcher Juan Centeno is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Houston Astros.
