M's play middle game of series against Blue Jays on KPUG Wednesday

Seattle Mariners James Paxton

Paxton had never pitched a complete game before Tuesday, but made short work of the Blue Jays, completing his feat with just 99 pitches.The Canadian's superb performance had been foreshadowed last week, when he struck out a career-best 16 in seven scoreless innings against the Athletics.

After being held hitless by Seattle's James Paxton on Tuesday, the Toronto Blue Jays were looking to get their offense clicking again. Solarte was replaced by pinch runner Anthony Alford, who scored on Smoak's double to right.

Josh Donaldson began the eighth inning hit brigade with a double off Juan Nicasio, the new Seattle reliever.

Pillar tried to stretch a single, but was gunned down at second.

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

After Segura got tagged out near home plate following a heads-up up defensive play by Toronto shortstop Lourdes Gurriel Jr., Garcia proceeded to walk Mitch Haniger before hitting Kyle Seager with a pitch to load the bases.

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

"I really really like the way our guys (in the bullpen) have the ability to pitch", said Clippard of the pen. "We needed to kind of bounce back". "It hurts a little bit letting it get away".

Manger also said police were not aware of any prior issues between Snyder and the victims. A contractor's van remained parked outside of the home where the three were killed.

In the first, Mariners leadoff hitter Dee Gordon scored from first base when Jean Segura doubled to left field in the next at bat.

"People want to sit with us and chant "Eh", said Carroll". The Mariners have allowed 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 12 games.

The Blue Jays had a hit from their first batter Wednesday when Teoscar Hernandez singled, but going into the eighth inning they still were struggling to put hits together and were trailing the Mariners 2-1. Hernandez answered with a leadoff blast into the second deck in center in the fourth, his sixth.

Leake has given up three or more earned runs in each of his last five starts and is allowing a.299 batting average on the season. He walked none and struck out three. Over his first three starts this season the 30-year-old went 2-0 with a 3.50 ERA.

The Toronto Blue Jays will play host to the Seattle Mariners at Rogers Centre. Cleburne is scheduled to open it's season May 18 against the Winnipeg Gold Eyes.

Paxton became the second Canadian to throw a no-hitter, and the first to do it north of the border, with Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Blue Jays. "I just wanted to show them that I heard them and that I was very grateful for their support".

Although the Blue Jays' starting rotation has struggled this season when it was expected to be a strong point, Happ has been solid. The right-handed Leake is 3-3 with a 6.28 ERA and 26 strikeouts.

Blue Jays: LHP J.A. Happ (4-2, 3.67) lost at Tampa Bay in his previous start, snapping a streak of four straight winning decisions. Leake is 1-1 with a 2.40 ERA and nine strikeouts in his career against the Blue Jays. Some of that was due to terrific glove work by the Mariners but the fact remains that the Blue Jays were no-hit for the first time since Justin Verlander did it for the Tigers on May 7, 2011.
