It was their third win this season when trailing after seven innings. The Mariners are 16-2 when leading after seven innings.

Kyle Seager dove for Kevin Pillar's scorched grounder down the third-base line.

James Paxton of the Seattle Mariners became the first Canadian to pitch a no-hitter in his home country, shutting down the Toronto Blue Jays 5-0 Tuesday night.

The final batter of the game was Josh Donaldson. He no-hit the Toronto Blue Jays, a 99-pitch masterpiece that solidified his place as one of the sport's most unheralded stars.

And Seager made the final play of the game, too. Toronto-born Dick Fowler threw one for the Philadelphia Athletics in 1945 in his first start in three years after serving for the Canadian Army in the Second World War.

Paxton, who's from British Columbia, pointed to a giant tattoo on his right forearm of a maple leaf - a national symbol of Canada - as he celebrated to a standing ovation at Rogers Centre.

"Of all places, to do it in Toronto, it's pretty incredible", Paxton said Tuesday. It was cool. I mean, what a defense tonight. "That was awesome. Those guys were making every play", Paxton said.

Earlier in the day, Ryabkov had said that Moscow's "European partners" should also work to keep the deal together. Iranian nuclear negotiator and deputy foreign minister Abbas Araghchi.


Solarte finally cashed in a runner for Toronto in the eighth inning, driving Donaldson in from second with a looping double to deep left field.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. struck out, before Maile hit a single to left field to drive in Martin, advancing to second on the throw to home. He proved that he is the starting pitcher we need. Ever since, his ERA has dipped, his average strikeouts went down and his fastball lost its velocity. He was the hardest-throwing lefty starter in 2017.

Coming off a career-high 16 strikeouts in his last start, Paxton (2-1) was electric once again, hitting 100 miles per hour with his fastball while retiring Josh Donaldson on a grounder to end it. Leake is 1-1 with a 2.40 ERA and nine strikeouts in his career against the Blue Jays. Now it looks like Paxton is getting on a roll. Just last week, Moore threw four innings, giving up 11 hits and 10 runs (all earned) while striking out one and walking two. "Just trying to challenge guys with my stuff instead of trying to be so ideal picking at the corners", he said.

"He's a good hitter, he's very powerful and he's turned into a hitter".

Jaime Garcia, the Toronto starter coming off a season-low 3⅓-innings outing in his last start against Cleveland, walked the tightrope early against Seattle. He had a 1.37 ERA in six starts in July. He makes his seventh career start against the Mariners in this contest.

Paxton's season has taken off since a bald eagle mistakenly landed on his shoulder before a start last month. Except Zunino's old-man strength sent it over the right-field wall for an opposite-field two-run home run and a Mariners 4-0 lead in the fourth inning.
