James Paxton raised his arms in the air and prepared himself for a mob of teammates.
Walks have been Stroman's undoing this season, and such was the case on Tuesday when he provided a free pass to Ben Gamel, Seattle's No. 9 hitter, leading off the third.More news: United Kingdom teachers take down analog clocks because students can't read them
James Paxton pitched a no-hitter Tuesday against the Blue Jays, striking out seven in a 99-pitch gem. The 29-year-old clearly had more than enough energy to finish the job as well, as his second-to-last pitch of the game was his fastest of the night, clocking in at 100 miles per hour.
Major League Baseball reacted swiftly, immediately placing Osuna on administrative leave for seven days while commencing its own independent investigation as per the guidelines of its domestic violence policy.More news: $15000 apartment fire starts in coffee can used for cigarette butts
Paxton cruised through most of the game, with two walks in the third inning his only real blemish. It was the only time the Blue Jays had a runner past first base. He got Anthony Alford to fly out and struck out Teoscar Hernandez before Josh Donaldson grounded out to secure Paxton's place in Canadian pitching lore.

With this 5-0 win by the Seattle Mariners, the team improves to 20-14 on the season. Dee Gordon had three of Seattle's 12 hits. The Blue Jays placed shortstop Aledmys Diaz on the 10-day disabled list (retroactive to Monday) with a left ankle sprain. Infielder Richard Urena was recalled from triple-A. Marcus Stroman allowed five runs on nine hits over five innings of work. Zunino is very underrated with how well he can center pitches and he can often steal a few strikes for his starters in the course of a game.
