On Tuesday night, Ladner, B.C., native James Paxton became the second Canadian to toss a no-hitter in the big leagues when he shut out the Toronto Blue Jays in a 5-0 win at Rogers Centre.

Nearly 73 years earlier, Toronto native Dick Fowler tossed a no-no for the Philadelphia Athletics, leading his club to a 1-0 win over the St. Louis Browns.

I thought it would be interesting to compare the boxscores of the only no-hitters thrown by Canadians:
