M’s play middle game of series against Blue Jays on KPUG Wednesday

Bettors can also wager on the game's spread with the run line odds coming in at Mariners +1.5 runs (-145) and Blue Jays +-1.5 runs (+125).

Seattle (+150) is hosting this game as the underdog to Toronto (-160) and Vegas has the Over/Under for this night game at 9 runs (+100 for the over and -120 for the under).

The Mariners got to Stroman again in the fourth, extending their lead to 4-0 with Zunino's two-run homer to right field. The Blue Jays are 1-6 in their last 7 Thursday games, 4-0 in Happs last 4 home starts and 5-1 in Happs last 6 starts.

It was the first Mariners no-hitter thrown away from Seattle.

Paxton found time among numerous interviews to do his scheduled workout early Wednesday.

The new crop of Falcons will hit the field on June 1 when they host the Bellingham Bells.

The Toronto hitters have put up 5.0 runs per contest, including 4.3 per game over its last 10 games and 2.4 per game over their last five.

Tyler Clippard earned his first save of the season, striking out two of the four batters he faced in the ninth inning.

They are 3-16 in such games. He is 4-2 with a 3.67 ERA, a 1.08 WHIP, 11 walks and 53 strikeouts over 41.2 innings of work.

"We expect to have success at the plate, we feel we have quality hitters that are capable of doing that", said Donaldson of the Jays' late inning uprising. After starting the game by allowing an infield single to Kansas City's John Jay, the 25-year-old righty gave up consecutive home runs to Jorge Soler, Mike Moustakas and Salvador Perez. "We kept them down for a long time in this series". "But we weren't able to shut the door tonight". He makes his third career start against the Blue Jays in this contest.

A big part of that was his performance against the Oakland Athletics on May 2, where he threw seven innings of no runs, five hits, one walk and a career-high 16 strikeouts.

Paxton's season has taken off since a bald eagle mistakenly landed on his shoulder before a start last month. A start by the Mariners' James Paxton was very, very good, while that of the Orioles' Dylan Bundy was little short of horrific. The 29-year-old clearly had more than enough energy to finish the job as well, as his second-to-last pitch of the game was his fastest of the night, clocking in at 100 miles per hour.

A four-run eighth inning on the strength of four doubles, including three in a row to start the frame, allowed the Jays to come from behind for the win, but the offence isn't trending in the right direction lately.

He allowed seven hits and three runs over 5 1/3 innings and took the loss in his most recent start Friday against the Angels. Martin didn't even break stride as he jogged to the Blue Jays dugout. The club's starters have a 5.31 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 8.2 strikeouts per nine innings.
