Game thread: Mariners vs. Blue Jays, 7/29

3:24 p.m. Jack Wilson is in the building.
3:10 p.m.: In two swings, it’s all gone: the no hitter, the shutout and the lead. After a single by Aaron Hill, Adam Lind hits a monster home run to center that puts Toronto ahead 2-1.
3:00 p.m. One inning closer. Rowland-Smith has another 1-2-3 inning — the only inning he hasn’t done it is the third — and is three innings away from a no-hitter. At 72 pitches, three innings are doable.
2:43 p.m. As if enough hasn’t happened today, we should officially start discussing this newest development: Ryan Rowland-Smith has a no-hitter going through five. And with just 58 pitches in that time, he certainly has a shot at it.
2:24 p.m. Tough day so far for Ken Griffey Jr., who is 0-for-2 with runners in scoring position. Stil scoreless through three innings.
2:08 p.m. No, Kenji Johjima does not exactly have blazing speed, and he was thrown out by a country mile on Jose Bautista’s throw to left. That was a difficult decision at third base, but I guess if you’ve got a shot to take a lead on Roy Halladay, you take it.
1:58 p.m.: Through two perfect innings, Ryan Rowland-Smith has thrown only 18 pitches. It’s hard to ask for more of an impressive start than that.
