To say James Paxton has been dealing of late would be a massive understatement.
In his last start, the Seattle Mariners starter struck out a season-high 16 batters over seven strong innings against the Oakland Athletics. But the left-hander upped the ante in a major way Tuesday night, as he no-hit the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre.
Watch Paxon complete MLB’s third no-no of the season in the video below:
Paxton only allowed three baserunners via walks while striking out seven in his dazzling outing. 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 mph.
