Mariner Hurler Throws No No In Native Country

Things seem to be looking up for the Seattle Mariners this season as they are 20-14 out of the blocks.  Mariner James Paxton, known as The Big Maple due to his Canadian heritage pitched a no-hitter in Toronto, becoming the first Canadian native to ever pitch a no hitter in Canada.
Dick Fowler is the only other Canadian to pitch a no-hitter.  Fowler pitched for the Philadelphia A's in 1945.
The Mariners beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-0 to begin a seven day road trip.
