The best part of Bartolo playfully waving off Reddick as he walks off the field is Reddick's knees buckling a bit because no one actually wants to be the one to break up his no-hitter pic.twitter.com/x6aCKzT2Y2— Tipping Pitches (@tipping_pitches) April 16, 2018

Even though Josh Reddick spoiled Bartolo Colon's shot at history, the veteran hurler still made sure to salute his opponent before walking off the field.

Reddick roped a double in the eighth inning, ending Colon's no-hitter just one batter after the Texas Rangers right-hander had lost his perfect game on a walk.

Colon would leave the game after 7 2/3 innings and stopped to have a brief exchange with Reddick on his way to the dugout. The Houston Astros fans at Minute Maid Park also gave Colon a loud ovation as he walked off the field.

"He looked at me and told me I was supposed to at least roll over that or not pull it like that," Reddick told reporters. "He and I go way back from our Oakland days. I told him 'great job'. He's one of the better guys you'll meet in the game and one of the better pitchers."
