James Paxton was throwing 100 miles per hour at end of no-hitter

10 May 2018

It took just a few hours for the British Columbia hometown of James Paxton to honour his no-hitter against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Seattle drew first blood in the series with a 5-0 victory in Tuesday night's series opener with the third no-hitter in the majors this season and the second in the past week.

In his seven starts, Stroman has faced the Yankees and Texas Rangers twice, the Cleveland Indians, the Minnesota Twins, and Mariners. The two teams will meet at 7:07 p.m. ET. Most recently, Yankees rookie Domingo German came out of a no-no bid in the sixth, as did Walker Buehler, the first-year player on the mound for Los Angeles who started his team's successful no-hitter but didn't get to complete it.

Zunino homered for the Mariners (20-14) and Robinson Cano, Nelson Cruz and Mitch Haniger also drove in runs.

Paxton threw just 99 pitches while recording seven strikeouts and three walks.

Man City earn record-breaking farewell for Yaya
But Celtic cannot compete with Premier League clubs in terms of wages or exposure, so this dream move could be exactly that. With just one game left in their brilliant season they could still break some more Premier League records.

The Mariners have gained 3.4 units and are 8-2 ATS when facing a left-handed starting pitcher this year. Seunghwan Oh, John Axford and Ryan Tepera (3-1) all pitched a scoreless inning, with the latter earning the win as the pitcher of record when the Blue Jays bats came alive.

Teoscar Hernandez homered for Toronto's first run in the fourth inning, and then the Blue Jays scored four in the eighth.

The NL West leaders won their third in a row after blowing two- and three-run leads earlier in the game. It is their best 17-game run since also going 16-1 from June 3-18, 1953. Paxton joins Chris Bosio, Randy Johnson, Felix Hernandez and Hisashi Iwakuma, as well as the 4 Mariners who combined to no-hit the Dodgers, as the only members of the Mariners No-Hit club.

The last pitcher to throw a no-hitter at Rogers Centre was Justin Verlander in 2011.

The final batter of the game was Josh Donaldson. Five times this season a starter has been pulled after six innings of no-hit ball.

Blankenship was the leading vote getter in four counties (Calhoun, Clay, Mingo and Roane). "It was a success", she said. Energy for and against Trump and Republicans in control of the General Assembly also led candidates to file in droves.

Reds 7, Mets 2: Eugenio Suarez had three hits and four RBIs, and his two-run single in the first inning gave Cincinnati a lead it never relinquished in a win over visiting NY.

Jenkins was flawless through the first four innings before Lowenstein hit a 3-2 fastball to right field to lead off the fifth. In 181 career games, the veteran southpaw owns a 4.41 ERA.

The offence was nice but the Jays were fully cognizant of importance of their bullpen, which has been while Toronto's starters have posted a MLB-low nine quality starts. He no-hit the Toronto Blue Jays, a 99-pitch masterpiece that solidified his place as one of the sport's most unheralded stars. Leake has struggled this season but he's likely due for a correction of sorts as he isn't as bad as the numbers bear out.

In order to give Donaldson and his suspect throwing (right) shoulder a break, the third baseman took up the reins as the designated hitter. Of course, the numbers don't support how they've gotten there as the Mariners entered Wednesday's game actually being outscored by two runs this season. He's 2-0 with a 2.51 ERA over seven starts since the bird stuck its talons into his back before the Minnesota Twins' home opener. Leake has not faced the Blue Jays since 2014. He is 6-foot-4 and Canadian, after all. He struck out a career-high 16 in his previous start, last week against Oakland.
