Throwing a no-hitter is one of the most impressive feats in all of sports, standing on the mound all game long and securing every single out while making sure you give up exactly zero hits.
It’s a feat that’s only been accomplished 299 times in over one hundred years in the Major’s. So being able to see one happen in real time is pretty rare.
Luckily for Big Blue Nation, one of our former Wildcats was able to add his name to a list of special pitchers and signify his name in MLB history. James Paxton of the Seattle Mariners, only one game removed from his career high 16 strikeout game, earned his first career complete game and first career no-hitter.
Congrats Mr. Paxton, you’ve made the Big Blue Nation proud.
