James Paxton capped a near-perfect month with his franchise-record sixth win in July on Sunday, striking out eight over six shutout innings in the Mariners’ 9-1 win over the Mets. The victory secured a series win for the Mariners, moving them back to .500.
“Paxton, what a month. Wow,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said. “6-0 in July and kind of leading us charging up the mountain. I don’t even think he had his best stuff today. Just a tick off on his breaking pitches, but his fastball was really good and he pounded the zone, got ahead in the count and just got us where we needed to go.”
