No-hitter a confidence boost for M’s
In response to: No-hitter is just another sign the Mariners’ Paxton is ready to assume the role of ace – May 9.
When someone throws a no-hitter in baseball, it is a very big deal because you were able to either strike out every batter or the infielders were able to field every ball cleanly and get the runner out. For the Mariners to throw a game with no hits is huge for the team because it will give them a giant confidence boost for their upcoming games. This no-hit game was a huge confidence booster for James Paxton because it shows that he is able to pitch really good for a whole entire game. Paxton threw a total of 99 pitches in nine innings, which is a very tough thing to do. Being able to throw a complete game is a great thing for the team because although he might not be able to throw a no-hitter or complete game every time, he will be heavily relied on to keep this team’s record good and maybe even carry them into the postseason.
