Toronto Blue Jays' Russell Martin slides safely into home during the eighth inning of a game in Toronto, on May 9, 2018.

James Paxton becomes the first former Kelowna Falcon to throw a no-hitter in the Major Leagues after dominating the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night in a 5-0 victory for the Seattle Mariners.

Toronto starter Jaime Garcia pitched well, but continued his trend of not going past the six inning. 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.

It came alive in a pivotal eighth-inning rally. In two career starts against them, Leake is 1-1 with a 2.40 ERA.

The Mariners are 1-6 in their last 7 vs. Solarte was replaced by pinch runner Anthony Alford, who scored on Smoak's double to right. Cruz doubled the lead with a single to plate Gordon.

"He started his program like he always does", Mariners manager Scott Servais said. "But we weren't able to shut the door tonight".

Erik Goeddel replaced Nicasio and struck out Lourdes Gurriel Jr., but gave up an RBI single to Luke Maile. When the Jays pile on five runs or more, they're 16-0.

It was their third win this season when trailing after seven innings.

"People want to sit with us and chant "Eh", said Carroll". "We needed to kind of bounce back".

One member has even started wearing a full length eagle costume to games, purchased specially to commemorate the freakish moment earlier this season when a bald eagle landed on Paxton. Five times this season, a starter has been pulled after six innings of no-hit ball.

"He likes to jab at me a little bit".

Marcus Stroman (0-5) allowed five runs and nine hits over five innings.

He allowed seven hits and three runs over 5 1/3 innings and took the loss in his most recent start Friday against the Angels.

The no-hitter was the sixth in Mariners franchise history. "All of a sudden I see him throwing the ball to first base and I was just kinda shocked like I can't believe that just happened". The Blue Jays had just two at-bats with runners in scoring position: Josh Donaldson, who made the final out of the game, and Teoscar Hernandez failed to capitalize on those situations.

The roof at Rogers Centre was open for the first time this season. Of course, the numbers don't support how they've gotten there as the Mariners entered Wednesday's game actually being outscored by two runs this season.

Blue Jays: Toronto acquired INF Gio Urshela from Cleveland for a player to be named later or cash. He makes his third career start against the Blue Jays in this contest.

The Blue Jays are putting the ball in the left hand of J.A. Happ (4-2, 3.67 ERA), who's got 53 strikeouts and 11 walks as well as a 1.08 WHIP. It was the only time the Blue Jays had a runner past first base.
