Mariners' James Paxton Makes History with No-Hitter Against The Blue Jays

The Mariners are off to a 20-14 start, hanging in the tough American League West race with the Astros and Angels, but they need Big Maple to make 30 starts.

James Paxton of the Seattle Mariners and formerly of the University of Kentucky, is pitching a no-hitter through seven innings against the Toronto Blue Jays.

After his no-hitter, those editors may want to note that Ladner is in British Columbia, a suburb of Vancouver. The team has a slash-line of.238/.296/.459 over its last five contests and is 2-3 SU during that stretch. Paxton also joined an elite group as he became just the second Canadian to toss a no-hitter, and first to do so in his home country.

The B.C. native threw the 1st no-hitter by a Canadian-born pitcher since Dick Fowler in 1945, helping Seattle to a 5-0 win over Toronto.

"Of all the places", Paxton said in a postgame TV interview.

"Of all places, here in Toronto, it's pretty wonderful", he said as teammates drenched him with blue Gatorade in his postgame interview.

"And then he smoked that ball to third base and Seager made an unbelievable play". Pillar is fast. Seager was faster.

Cano thrived batting against righties a year ago, maintaining a slash line of.312/.371/.519 across 455 plate appearances (compared to his total season line of.280/.338/.453).

How about five outs away?


Russell Martin led off the Toronto eighth with a long drive that left fielder Ben Gamel caught near the wall.

"You couldn't write this stuff", Paxton said.

And Seager made the final play of the game, too.

"It was probably about the sixth inning", Paxton said, when asked when he first thought a no-hitter against the Blue Jays was possible.

It was the first Mariners no-hitter thrown away from Seattle. His sophomore season, Paxton earned a spot in the starting rotation and went 4-2 with a 2.92 ERA. It was an awesome moment for the Canadian pitcher.

The Mariners were cruising and then Mike Zunino stepped on the gas pedal. Paxton threw a 98 miles per hour fastball up and away that Donaldson swung at and missed. A very good pitch.

Marcus Stroman scattered six hits and two runs over seven innings Wednesday in the Blue Jays' loss to the Twins.

The Mariners have hit 15 home runs in their last 10 games.

Healy pumped his fist after catching Seager's throw, and the Mariners streamed out of the dugout, dousing their pitcher with a cooler as the crowd of 20,513 cheered.
