A nation away, a no-hitter. Mariners' James Paxton enters baseball history

Mariners Paxton has no-hitter through 8

Gibbons, whose team was coming off a no-hitter thrown at them the night before by Canadian James Paxton, cobbled together a makeshift lineup for the game. 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.

Ryan Tepera (3-1) pitched one inning for the win and Tyler Clippard pitched around a leadoff single in the ninth to earn his first save.

The Toronto hitters have put up 5.0 runs per contest, including 4.3 per game over its last 10 games and 2.4 per game over their last five. The Seattle Mariners wrap up a three game series with the Toronto Blue Jays on the road Thursday night. Offensively, Kevin Pillar leads the Blue Jays with 44 hits and 17 RBI while Yangervis Solarte and Justin Smoak have combined for 66 hits and 42 RBI. Martin hit another double in the next at bat, chasing Nicasio from the game. "But we weren't able to shut the door tonight".

A national stage in a nation away, Paxton pitched his finest performance in his home country. Garcia moved in to gather the ball, but his throw to first was off line and Segura took second on the throwing error.

"He likes to jab at me a little bit". Hernandez answered with a leadoff blast into the second deck in center in the fourth, his sixth.

The under has hit in three of Toronto's last seven games. In his last four starts, he has allowed 20 runs and 32 hits over 20 2/3 innings.

Garcia allowed two runs, one earned, and three hits in five innings. Martin, usually the catcher, started the night at third base for the first time this season.

He is also the first Canadian to throw a no-hitter since Dick Fowler did it for the Philadelphia Athletics against the St. Louis Browns in 1945. The Blue Jays had just two at-bats with runners in scoring position: Josh Donaldson, who made the final out of the game, and Teoscar Hernandez failed to capitalize on those situations.

"I'm just so happy - for everyone, for Paxton", said Maple Grover Daniel Carroll. They were giving me some trouble in the seventh inning, but once I got past that, they started kind of cheering me on.

The roof at Rogers Centre was open for the first time this season.

Toronto announced earlier in the day that it had acquired third baseman Gio Urshela from the Cleveland Indians for a player to be named or cash. J.A. Happ gets the ball, and he is 4-2 with a 3.67 ERA and 53 strikeouts this season.

Although the Blue Jays' starting rotation has struggled this season when it was expected to be a strong point, Happ has been solid. Leake has not faced the Blue Jays since 2014. Toronto has a talented team but the pitching hasn't performed to expectations: Stroman is 0-5 with a 7.71 ERA, Marco Estrada is 3-2 with a 5.21 ERA and Aaron Sanchez is 2-3 with a 4.14 ERA.
