Analysis: Paxton's scoreless innings streak to begin the year ended at 23 when the A's got on the board in the third. He had allowed just eight hits in his first three starts combined. ''Just didn't have it today,'' said Paxton, who had been 2-0 with a 2.75 ERA in three previous starts against Oakland. He'll try to bounce back Wednesday in Detroit, where he's 1-1 with a 3.86 ERA in three outings.

Analysis: Paxton struck out nine and his only walk was to the first batter he faced. He hasn't allowed a run yet in three starts this year, and his scoreless stretch is a team record to open a season. He's the 10th pitcher in the majors ever to open a season with three scoreless starts of at least six innings.

Analysis: Paxton shut down Houston for the second time in a week, helping the Mariners rebound from Sunday's ugly ninth-inning collapse against the Angels. In 13 innings against the Astros this season, Paxton has not allowed a run and scattered six hits.

Analysis: Paxton was really impressive after the All-Star break last season and this was a good early indication that he's poised to take the next step in Seattle's rotation.

Paxton went 6-7 with a 3.79 ERA in 20 starts last season, spending almost three weeks on the disabled list with an elbow injury in August.
