The Toronto Blue Jays are set to host the Seattle Mariners at Rogers Centre.

"Fastball is obviously my best pitch; they know it and I know it". Just last week, Moore threw four innings, giving up 11 hits and 10 runs (all earned) while striking out one and walking two.

Paxton also posted the third no-hitter by an Major League Baseball pitcher this season, and the second solo job, after the A's Sean Manaea managed one against the Red Sox in April.

He did not factor in the decision in the first game of a doubleheader against the Cleveland Indians Thursday, despite allowing seven hits and six runs in 3 1/3 innings. The next pitch was 100 miles per hour on the inside corner - the fastest pitch Paxton has thrown all season - for a called strike two. Toronto starter Marcus Stroman continued to struggle with all five runs plated on nine hits and a pair of free passes over five frames before five relievers put up zeros.

Paxton struck out 16 hitters in his last start against the Oakland Athletics on May 2.

"It's very special", Paxton said after the game on the ROOT Sports broadcast. Most recently, Yankees rookie Domingo German came out of a no-no bid in the sixth, as did Walker Buehler, the first-year player on the mound for Los Angeles who started his team's successful no-hitter but didn't get to complete it. The crowd rooted for him in the late innings, realizing he was one of their own — his tattoo of Canada's national symbol includes an image of a family home near Vancouver. For Paxton, it will be interesting to see if he can avoid those minor injuries and become one of the best lefties in the game. He'll be looking for his first win since September 24.

Mike Zunino homered for the Mariners (20-14) and Robinson Cano, Nelson Cruz and Mitch Haniger also drove in runs.

That's his fifth homer this season (in 15 games after starting the season on the disabled list) and his second in two games.

Paxton made his big-league debut in 2013 and made his first appearance in Toronto on September 22, 2014, getting hammered for nine runs, eight earned, on seven hits and six walks in 2.2 innings.

Toronto has recorded 21.9 Runs + Hits + Errors per game over its last 10 outings and 22.0 over its last five. Diaz sprained his ankle when he landed awkwardly on first base in Sunday's win at Tampa Bay. INF Gift Ngoepe cleared waivers and was assigned to Triple-A.

Left-hander Wade LeBlanc (0-0,3.57 ERA) will make his seventh appearance and second start of the season for the Mariners on Wednesday.
