  • James paxton no hitter

James Paxton became the first Canadian to toss a no-hitter in his home country as he pitched the Seattle Mariners to a 5-0 win in Toronto.

The Mariners are 20-41 in their last 61 games played in Toronto and are 1-6 in their last seven games versus the Blue Jays overall. (Tango's method actually has Bundy's start as the worst of the season, with that formula generating a score of minus-9 for Moore). "To do it in Toronto - that's pretty incredible".

Seattle's hitters have been powered by outfielder Mitch Haniger and second baseman Robinson Cano. The other one was by Dick Fowler on September 9, 1945, for the Philadelphia A's against the St. Louis Browns.

Paxton was born in Ladner, British Columbia. He instead played in an independent league, was drafted by the Mariners in the fourth round the next year and joined them.

"To have it happen in Canada. That was incredible. Those guys were making every play", Paxton said. That was very special. Paxton's reaction seemed to say it - maybe that was hit No. 1.

Paxton said his tattoo also includes a mural of Bowyer Island, north of Vancouver, where his family owns a summer cabin. "The fans were giving me some trouble in the seventh inning, but once I got past that, they started kind of cheering me on". He forced Donaldson into a ground out with two outs in the bottom of the ninth to secure the no-hit bid. "It's one of those experiences you'll never forget". On the other side, the Blue Jays are just 1-4 in Stroman's last five starts and are 1-4 in his last five outings when their opponent allows five runs or more in their previous game. By Statcast's measurements, he got as high as 99.5 miles per hour in the ninth, making him one of only six pitchers in the last five years to throw that hard that late in a game-and Paxton is far and away the geezer of the bunch at 29 years old.

But he expressed hope that the president would "be back in the country on Saturday by the grace of God". Buhari however spent 51 days following medical advice to run some recommended tests by his doctors.

Paxton was a supplemental round draft pick they received as compensation for A.J. Burnett's departure to the New York Yankees as a free agent. The lefty has had injuries impact his ability to pitch more than 140 innings in a season, but when he is on the mound the opposition is in for a tough outing. The right-hander will take an ugly 7.52 ERA into his next start Tuesday against the Mariners. Pillar is hitting.316/.363/.549 with four home runs, 16 RBIs, 23 runs and six stolen bases, while Solarte is batting.270 with nine homers, 22 RBIs and 21 runs. There had been 255 no-hitters thrown in the modern era (starting in 1901).

This is what Major League Baseball hitters are asked to face every single game, night in and night out: dozens upon dozens of pitchers, the great majority of whom can run it up to 95 miles per hour and beyond, like Paxton.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said he feels that will turn around.

Still, periodically, he still reflects on the convoluted chain of events triggered when he and the Blue Jays failed to come to an agreement on a signing bonus.

Aledmys Diaz was officially placed on the DL yesterday with a sprained ankle, the initial timeline is three to four weeks however the shortstop is now in a walking boot.
