:: James Paxton no-hitter ::

James Paxton: May 8, 2018 vs. Blue Jays
The 29-year-old left-hander was brilliant in a 99-pitch no-hitter of the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre. Paxton, a native of Canada, tossed the first road no-hitter in franchise history. He struck out seven and walked three. His final pitch of the game -- a fastball to Josh Donaldson that resulted in a groundout to third -- was 99 mph, according to Statcast™.

Hisashi Iwakuma: Aug. 12, 2015 vs. Orioles
Nearly three years to the day of King Felix's no-no, Iwakuma struck out seven and walked three in a 3-0 victory over Baltimore at Safeco Field, becoming the second Japanese pitcher after Hideo Nomo (1996, 2001) to toss a no-hitter in the Majors. It was also the first complete game of Iwakuma's Major League career.

Felix Hernandez: Aug. 15, 2012 vs. Rays
Hernandez tossed the third no-hitter in Safeco Field history -- and the second perfect game in the ballpark (Philip Humber, CWS, 2012) -- when he silenced Tampa Bay in dominant fashion. The righty struck out 12 and walked none on 113 pitches.

Kevin Millwood, Charlie Furbush, Stephen Pryor, Lucas Luetge, Brandon League, Tom Wilhelmsen: June 8, 2012 vs. Dodgers
Millwood started and went six innings, and Furbush (2/3 innings), Pryor (1/3), Luetge (1/3), League (2/3) and Wilhelmsen (one) combined to no-hit the Dodgers in the third Interleague no-hitter (there have since been three others) and first Mariners no-hitter at Safeco Field; Humber tossed the first no-hitter (a perfect game) at the ballpark on April 21 of that season. Millwood walked one and struck out six before exiting after 68 pitches due to a groin strain. The six pitchers used in the no-hitter tied an MLB record.

Chris Bosio: April 22, 1993 vs. Red Sox
Bosio blanked the Red Sox for the second no-hitter in four seasons at the Kingdome, a 7-0 Seattle victory. The 30-year-old right-hander walked two and struck out four, needing only 97 pitches to complete the feat.

Randy Johnson: June 2, 1990 vs. Tigers
The Big Unit recorded the first no-hitter in franchise history when he blanked Detroit at the Kingdome in a 2-0 victory. Then 26 years old, Johnson still struggled with his control, entering that game with a 4.54 career ERA. Though he walked six batters and needed 138 pitches, the performance was a sign of things to come in his brilliant career, which would include five Cy Young Awards, the all-time record for strikeouts by a left-handed pitcher (4,875) and induction into the Hall of Fame.
