Eagle lands on Mariners' James Paxton before game

Nicknamed the Big Maple, Paxton proved he was the flawless landing spot for this eagle.

Thursday afternoon, the Twins and Mariners will meet on the diamond before a sold-out crowd which should have plenty to do despite the chill.




"I'm not gonna outrun an eagle, so just thought, we'll see what happens", Paxton told reporters after the game, reports the Associated Press. Presumably, Paxton does not know how to handle huge birds. I like the Mariners' offense better right now, but with Gibson on the mound nothing will be easy for Seattle. But it was just trying to stand on my shoulder. Gibson earned a win in his first start as he pitched six scoreless innings against the Orioles in Baltimore. "I was like, 'The guy (handler) is over there, I'm not the eagle guy.' I guess the eagle got confused". Knebel threw a 95 miles per hour fastball for ball two, then stumbled to the ground and left with the assistance of trainers. It settled on the ground in front of him, and then tried again to land on Paxton's shoulder. "I don't have any scratches, I don't believe", Paxton said. Twins closer Fernando Rodney joked about using one of the imaginary arrows he shoots into the air after converting a save to try to bring down the bird. Paxton gave up a two-run home run in the sixth and got a no-decision.
