Canadian pitcher James Paxton threw a no-hitter for the Seattle Mariners against the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday in a 5-0 win at the Rogers Centre.

According to Elias Sports Bureau, Paxton's was only the seventh no-hitter thrown outside the US and the British Columbia native is only the second Canadian to throw a no-hitter, emulating a feat first achieved in 1945 by Dick Fowler of the Philadelphia Athletics.

Paxton joined 1945 Philadelphia Athletics' pitcher Dick Fowler as the only two Canadians to throw no-hitters. He no-hit the Toronto Blue Jays, a 99-pitch masterpiece that solidified his place as one of the sport's most unheralded stars.

This outing was a lot better than his first game in Canada.

Toronto Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna was arrested and charged Tuesday morning with assault. He forced Donaldson into a ground out with two outs in the bottom of the ninth to secure the no-hit bid.

Donaldson hit the ball hard to third baseman Kyle Seager, who collected it and fired to first for the final out. Kendrys Morales then lined the next pitch hard to center field but right at Dee Gordon. "And he had another diving play in the seventh inning, it was just ridiculous". Donaldson ended it with a hard one-hopper to Seager.

I'm sorry but I think we have to be cautious about players who don't play for us. "Enough is enough. Barcelona boss Bartomeu in an interview said: "I don't want to talk about players at other clubs".

Nola allowed only five hits and one run.

After the game, Paxton said you could not write this any better. Some pitchers wilt after 100 pitches, Paxton's velocity rarely dips after 80-plus pitches. His ability to ramp up the fastball as the game progressed is a reminder of how Justin Verlander did that back in his MVP season in 2011. "It was nearly like I was dreaming; it's pretty insane".

The Marcus Stroman struggles are becoming increasingly troublesome as the hurler surrendered five earned runs last night versus the Mariners. And I was like I'm going to let it rip, top of the zone, see what happens.

Paxton's four-seam fastball averaged a staggering 95.9 miles per hour on Tuesday, and he maxed out at 100.2.

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). Paxton threw a 98 miles per hour fastball up and away that Donaldson swung at and missed.

"And to see him dive down that line and no-look that throw, I was nearly in shock". I just threw my hands in the air and just enjoyed the moment with my teammates. And it was so amusing, he ran by me after that and said, 'You're welcome.' That's just true Kyle Seager humor. They were giving me some trouble in the seventh inning, but once I got past that, they started kind of cheering me on.
