Phillies 4, Giants 2: Aaron Nola struck out a career-high 12 batters in seven solid innings, leading Philadelphia past visiting San Francisco. The young hurler was making his season debut after rehabbing a nagging oblique injury all spring.
Paxton is the fifth Mariners starting pitcher to throw a solo no-hitter in club history, joining Chris Bosio, Randy Johnson, Felix Hernandez and Hisashi Iwakuma, who had the last one on August 12, 2015. That tied the record for most strikeouts in a game this season.
"This is the best that I've ever pitched over two games", he said.
Yankees 3, Red Sox 2: Aaron Judge delivered the tiebreaking RBI single with one out in the bottom of the seventh inning off Joe Kelly as NY edged visiting Boston. And he did so as an avatar of that other massive trend that has devoured the game over the last decade: velocity. It was his fastest pitch of the game until he rocketed a 100 miles per hour fastball on the inside corner that Donaldson fouled off on the next pitch. The last two pitches of the contest. Donaldson ended it with a hard one-hopper to Seager.
Paxton is a 29-year-old lefty from Canada. With Felix Hernandez no longer an ace, Paxton is clearly the team's best starter, even if Felix still drew the Opening Day assignment. "There have been some great pitchers that have been Canadian that have come through the Major Leagues".

Bears LB Roquan Smith says some stolen items were recovered
I would also like to thank many of you that spread the information on various social-media platforms. Smith's family had previously requested the public's help in recovering the stolen items.
His only blemish that prevented a flawless game was the three walks he issued to go along with seven strikeouts. As FanGraphs' Jay Jaffe noted Monday in the wake of the Dodgers' combined no-hitter, pitchers are being pulled from no-hitters in progress more and more often. Seattle's first five no-hitters all came at home.
That the game has trended in this direction is no surprise, given the way franchises increasingly put a premium on protecting arms and on not exposing pitchers to a lineup multiple times.
There were some hard hits that were saved by teammates. But efforts like his are increasingly the exception instead of the rule.
Nola allowed only five hits and one run.
We had just one no-hitter in 2016 and one in 2017 after seven in 2015, so it will be interesting to see if we're headed to another Year of the No-Hitter.
Earlier this season, Paxton had already made headlines when an eagle landed on him during the pre-match ceremony ahead of the Mariners' game against the Minnesota Twins at Target Field.
