Real or Not? No-hitter the latest feat in James Paxton's rise

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.

The no-hitter also was Paxton's first career complete game.

Blue Jays: OF Curtis Granderson, who left Friday's game with right hamstring tightness, will have his status re-evaluated Tuesday.

"When we get (Stroman) going and get Jaime going a little bit, I'm optimistic about that", Gibbons said. Paxton departed with a 2-0 lead after throwing 105 pitches, but Juan Nicasio immediately came on and allowed two runs to take the win out of Paxton's pocket. "Pretty incredible. To have it happen in Canada, what are the odds of that happening?"

Kyle Seager, the Mariners third baseman, nearly folded himself in half to get a glove on the scorched one hopper.

From there, Paxton retired the Blue Jays in order.

The 29-year-old Paxton, a native of British Columbia, needed just 99 pitches over his nine innings in the Mariners' 5-0 win.

This was the sixth no-hitter for the Mariners franchise, and the first since Hisashi Iwakuma did it against Baltimore in 2015.

"That last inning was just a lot of fastballs".

After cradling the Donaldson blast, Seager threw to first for the easy out and Paxton, arms extended toward the Rogers' roof, received his jubilant teammates on the mound.

"It's very special", Paxton said after the game on the ROOT Sports broadcast. "I really appreciate their cheers after the game, supporting me being Canadian". He signed with the Mariners after they drafted him in 2010. For Paxton, it will be interesting to see if he can avoid those minor injuries and become one of the best lefties in the game.

"I had some family here tonight, I had some friends". Felix Hernandez threw a flawless game in 2012, and Randy Johnson tossed Seattle's first no-hitter in 1990. (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). Five times this season, a starter has been pulled after six innings of no-hit ball.
