As good as James Paxton was Wednesday in his season debut, it wasn’t the first time he’d earned a victory after pitching at least six shutout innings.

He did that twice late last season, beginning with an MLB debut in which he allowed four hits over seven innings while striking out 10 in a win over Kansas City. That was the first of four starts he made during a September callup that saw him allow just four earned runs over 24 innings.

So when Paxton was pitching his way to a seven-inning, two-hit performance against the Angels Wednesday, he was just picking up where he left off.

“It did feel like I kind of just got back into that groove and I was feeling really comfortable out there,” he told 710 ESPN Seattle’s “Bob and Groz”.

Bob Stelton and Dave Grosby discuss Paxton’s performance in the video above.
