The price is a bit steep, but you have to like the Blue Jays to get a much needed victory at home with the pitcher in better form leading the way.
James Paxton, welcome to history.
One night after Paxton's feat, the Blue Jays made sure they would not be no-hit again when Hernandez singled to begin the bottom of the first.
Talk about a memorable homecoming for Paxton, who is originally from British Columbia. Last week he became the first pitcher from Canada to strike out 16 batters in a game.

Healy pumped his fist after catching Seager's throw, and the Mariners streamed out of the dugout, dousing their pitcher with a cooler as the crowd of 20,513 cheered.
"Of all places, to do it in Toronto is pretty fantastic", Paxton told reporters after the game.More news: Three People Killed in Attack at Shiite Mosque in South Africa

No-hitter watch took its crescendo with seven outs to go. Pillar is fast. Seager was faster.
Martin did not look out of place, either, making a terrific bare-handed catch on a soft infield grounder by Guillermo Heredia in the sixth inning and then firing a laser to first base for the inning's third out. That ended the hitting carousel and evened the three-game series at 1-1.
Only five other times have the Mariners thrown a no-hitter, joining the ranks of Hisashi Iwakuma (2015), Felix Hernandez (2012, ideal game), Chris Bosio (1993), Randy Johnson (1990), and on June 8, 2012, the Mariners had a combined no-hitter when Kevin Millwood, Charlie Furbush, Stephen Pryor, Lucas Luetge, Brandon League, Tom Wilhelmsen in a 1-0 win over the Dodgers.
The no-hitter marked the sixth in Mariners history, following exceptional efforts by Randy Johnson (1990), Chris Bosio (1993), Felix Hernandez (a flawless game in 2012) and Hisashi Iwakuma (2015). In fact, with 99 pitches, it was just the 12th no-hitter since 1988 - when we first have pitch data - with fewer than 100 pitches, out of the 75 individual no-hitters thrown. Paxton threw a 98 miles per hour fastball up and away that Donaldson swung at and missed.
"He's a good hitter, he's very powerful and he's turned into a hitter". Except Zunino's old-man strength sent it over the right-field wall for an opposite-field two-run home run and a Mariners 4-0 lead in the fourth inning.
And for the longest time Wednesday night, it appeared they were on their way to another loss and would be trying to avoid being swept in their three-game series against the Seattle Mariners in the finale Thursday night at the Rogers Centre.
Cano gave Seattle a 1-0 lead in the third inning, driving in Gamel from third base with a groundout.
Making his second start of the season following five relief appearances, Seattle left-hander Wade LeBlanc allowed one run and four hits.
