  • James paxton no hitter

Seattle Mariners pitcher James Paxton made history on Tuesday night, when he became the first Canadian to throw a no-hitter in his home country.

Paxton (2-1) struck out seven. Over nine innings in Toronto, the big Canadian lefty struck out seven Blue Jays and needed just 99 pitches to finish the job, throwing as hard as 100 miles per hour in his final frame.

Toronto Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna was arrested and charged Tuesday morning with assault. He did so without a surfeit of strikeouts-in fact, his no-hitter was his first start of the season in which he didn't record more strikeouts than innings pitched.

"I'm gonna rear back and throw as hard as I can", the Canadian added, when asked about reaching 100mph on his final pitch.

The Toronto native no-hit the St. Louis Browns in 1945 while a member of the Philadelphia Athletics.

Mike Zunino hit a two-run homer as the Mariners improved to 12-6 on the road. Instead, with his pitch count at 105, he was finished for the night and then watched his bullpen blow a 2-0 lead.

"I recognized how hard my teammates were playing for me out there and I just wanted to go out there and give it everything I had, because I knew that they were doing the same thing for me", Paxton said. One of them was running so don't throw to that guy. He didn't walk a batter. He became only the eighth pitcher in Major League Baseball history to have more than 16 strikeouts in a game and then record a no-hitter in the same season, joining elite company that includes Max Scherzer (2015), Nolan Ryan (1991 and 1974) and Sandy Koufax (1962).

Tommy Hunter got the last out in the eighth and the first out in the ninth. That tied the record for most strikeouts in a game this season. He struck out six.

Dee Gordon caught a pair of tough line drives to center, Ben Gamel ran down a long fly ball in left-center and Ryon Healy made a couple of nice plays at first base on wayward throws. The Braves bullpen of Shane Carle, A.J. Minter, Dan Winkler and Arodys Vizcaino (fifth save) combined to work three scoreless innings to preserve the win.

Bundy also became the first Orioles pitcher since 1954, the franchise's first season in Baltimore, to give up seven runs without recording an out (per the Baltimore Sun).

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.

Rockies 4, Angels 2: Jon Gray tossed seven shutout innings to extend Colorado's dominant stretch of starts, Trevor Story doubled and tripled, and the Rockies beat Los Angeles in Denver. "And he had another diving play in the seventh inning, it was just ridiculous".
