Blue Jays’ Marco Estrada has no-hitter through six

Blue Jays starter Marco Estrada has not allowed a hit through six innings pitched against the Mariners at Safeco Field. You can follow along here.

Estrada, 33, has thrown 79 pitches, striking out eight and walking two. He is aiming for the second no-hitter of the 2016 season; the last came on April 21 when Jake Arrieta no-hit the Reds. It would be the second no-no in Blue Jays history, after Dave Stieb threw one in 1990.

The nine-year veteran was named to the All-Star team this year and had a 3.78 ERA in 157 innings across 26 starts entering Monday.

The Blue Jays led 3–0 heading to the top of the seventh.
