The 29th Nicknamed "The Big Maple," left-leaning left 99 pitches this year for the third no-hitter in the majors – all three came to different countries.

Paxton (2: 1) had 16 high-profile strikeouts at the last start and was 100 mph long with his fastball Josh Donaldson, who had to face a ground to finish.
Paxton stroked seven, went three and benefited from a superb game by Kyle Seager. With two outs in the seventh, the former Gold Glover made a complete dive stop on the fast Kevin Pillar Grounders on the line and then threw a dodgy throw so that first base Ryon Healy jumped on a hop.
Marcus Stroman (19659008) 0-5) remained winless in seven starts.
YANKEES 3, RED SOX 2
NEW YORK – Giancarlo Stanton has been obedient twice, with Aaron Judge scoring a tiebreaking single from Yankees opponent Joe Kelly and New York in Boston for his 16th victory in 17 games.
In the opening ceremony of a three game showdown between the two first baseball teams, Luis Severino struck 11 during a pitching duel with Red Sox's Lefty Drew Pomeranz.
After bank racking at Fenway Park Last month, when Kelly Tyler drove Austin with a pitch, a revised-up crowd of 45,773 appeared in the Bronx. This time there were no incidents.
Neil Walker started the crucial rally in the seventh inning with a pinch hit double by Heath Hembree (2-1), who pushed the next two battles around a Balk. Kelly was greeted with loud boos and a base-loaded single by Judge from the Bullpen.
David Robertson (3-1) gave Mookie Betts a Triple Triple in the seventh match. Aroldis Chapman scored a ninth goal for his eighth save in nine chances.
BRAVES 1, RAYS 0
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Ronald Acuna Jr. became the youngest player in a 1-0 game since 1935, lifting Atlanta via Tampa Bay.
The last player younger than 20-year-old Acuna to go deep in a 1-0 game was the Phil C Cavarretta of the Chicago Cubs against the St. Louis Cardinals on September 25, 1935, according to MLB.com. Cavarretta was 19 years old at the time.
Sean Newcomb (3-1) admitted two singles in six innings and threw 13 goalless innings over his last two starts for the Braves. Atlanta finished a three-game skid and won his sixth consecutive road game, including three consecutive road closures.
Four relievers beat the last three innings for Atlanta, including Arodys Vizcaino, who earned his fifth save.

ROYALS 15, ORIOLES 7
BALTIMORE – Dylan Bundy set up a dubious record of the present time, abandoned four homers and left without a chance from a 10-run-first inning that took Kansas City past the unlucky Baltimore.
Bundy (1-5) was lifted after allowing five hits and two walks to the only seven strokes he faced. The Orioles have lost seven in a row and 19 out of 22.
Jon Jay launched the attack with a leadoff single before Jorge Soler, Mike Moustakas and Salvador Perez married one after the other.
Two walks and a home run by Alex Gordon followed, ending Bundy's night. It was the first time in the current era (1908-present) that a pitcher gave up four home runs on a trip in which he did not shut down a batter, according to baseball-reference.com.
Moustakas ended with three hits, two homers and five RBIs. Danny Duffy (1-4) allowed a run and six strokes over 5 1/3 innings.
CUBS 4, MARLINS 3
CHICAGO – Kris Bryant slipped safely with the run-through run on Victor Caratinis Grounder to the right in the eighth inning when Chicago beat Miami.
Caratini ended up winning the RBI, a few innings after the Cubs catcher got into a heated home situation plate with Miami's Derek Dietrich.
Bryant took a leadoff walk from Kyle Barraclough (0-2) in the eighth, finishing in second place in a wild field and moving to Anthony Rizzo's Grounder in third place. While the infield was playing, Caratini landed on second baseman Starlin Castro, who took his time and threw it a little high and high, making Bryant easily score.
Caratini was fourth in the midst of a tense moment in Miami when Dietrich was replaced by right fielder Ben Zobrist, who wanted to score second from Lewis Brinson's single.
Dietrich tried to overtake Caratini after the ball hit him lightly on the plate. The two exchanged words while the shelters and troughs were empty, but there did not seem to be any blows or jolts. There were no emissions.
Carl Edwards Jr. (1-0) worked a scoreless eighth, and Brandon Morrow pulled all three doughs in ninth for his eighth save in nine chances.
BREWERS 3, INDIANS 2  MILWAUKEE – Reliever Brent Suter married AL Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber and threw 4 2/3 innings of two run balls to lead Milwaukee over Cleveland.
Suter arrived in the first game of Kluber (5-2) in third for the first homer of his professional career. It was the first run of the house that Kluber had given to a pitcher to the Indians in his eight years.
Suter (2-2) also experienced an eventful night on the hill. The left-hander entered with one from the first for starter Wade Miley, who left 19 games with a tense right-hand oblique path.
Suter allowed five hits, including solohomers to Jose Ramirez and Francisco Lindor, and hit five in handing over Cleveland his fourth loss in a row. Josh Hader fanned three to his fifth raise in the last two innings.
REDS 7, METS 2
CINCINNATI – The catcher Devin Mesoraco took a short walk between the clubhouses just before the first pitch when New York struggled for help position, and he watched as the Mets lose to Cincinnati.
The Mets exchanged former ace Matt Harvey for the Reds – he will line up for the start of a series against the Dodgers on Thursday in Los Angeles – and had Mesoraco on her side bench for first place. He nipped in ninth and took a Called Third Strike when the Mets lost for the seventh time in eight games.
Eugenio Suarez had a base-loaded single and an RBI double-left-handed Jason Vargas (0-3). He added another RBI single in seventh and Scooter Gennett had a two-run homer by Hansel Robles.
Luis Castillo (2-4) drew the first 14 Mets ahead of Amed Rosario.
TWINS 7, CARDINALS 1
ST. LOUIS – Jake Odorizzi brought in five strong innings and Eduardo Escobar had a two-run homer when Minnesota won his season-high fifth straight game.
The win limited a two-game sweep series for the Twins, who have won 14 of them last 17 games against National League teams.
Odorizzi (3-2) allowed only two hits and a run, a homer from St. Louis Jose Martinez in the first inning. The right-handed man combines with three relaxers to pull back the last 18 doughs of the game.
Carlos Martinez (3-2) saw his range of six straight starts allowing one or less runs.
PHILLIES 4, GIANTS 2
PHILADELPHIA – Aaron Nola hit a career-high 12 in seven stellar innings and Odubel Herrera had two hits to expand his career-best on-base series to 37 games for Philadelphia.
Aaron Altherr, Carlos Santana and Jorge Alfaro hit solo home runs for the Phillies. Nola (5-1) allowed one run and five hits while walking none.
Hector Neris got the last two outs and crossed out both battles for his seventh in nine chances. Manager Gabe Kapler decided to leave Tommy Hunter in ninth place for the first batter instead of going to Neris, who blew in Washington's 5-0 away win on Sunday.
Derek Holland (1-4) got the loss. 19659054] PIRATES 10, WHITE SOX 6
CHICAGO – Colin Moran hit a double double, Jordy Mercer also had two RBIs and Pittsburgh cleaned up the Interleague game again and beat the White Sox.
Corey Dickerson had four hits. The pirates have fallen five out of seven, but they love to plunder the other league, especially their colleagues in AL Central. Pittsburgh improved this year to 7-2 in the Interleague game and 65-44 in the last six seasons, tops in the NL.
Welington Castillo fired twice for last-place White Sox, who lost four straight.
Tyler Glasnow (1-1) won in relief. Chris Wolstad (0-2) took the loss.
TIGERS 7, RANGERS 4
ARLINGTON, Texas – Victor Martinez, Jeimer Candelario, and Jose Iglesias both married for Detroit.
Adrian Beltre received three hits for Texas after missing 12 games with a tense Achilles tendon. He is MLB's active leader in hits with 3,078.
Mike Fiers (3-2), with a 8.90 ERA in six previous appearances against Texas, took a break in the fifth. Shane Greene struck the side after a leadoff single in ninth for his first four of the season and seventh overall in nine chances.
Mike Minor (3-2) took the loss.
ROCKIES 4, ANGELS 2
DENVER – Jon Gray continued his strong series of seven goalless innings for Colorado, and the Rocky Mountains won their sixth consecutive race.
Gray went one and took care to ink Colorado's ninth straight quality start, a franchise record. He shook off a 28-stage first inning to make the angels' strong lineup four-fold. 1965-90 Justin Upton hit a two-run homer ahead of Rockies helper Adam Ottavino in the eighth to cut Colorado's lead in half, but closer Wade Davis got the last three outs for his major league lead to save 14th.
The Rockies took a 1-0 lead on DJ LeMahieu's RBI single in third-off starter Andrew Healey (1-2).
