The Blue Jays announced on Monday afternoon that falling ice from the CN Tower caused damage to the roof of the Rogers Centre.

Specifically, as Sportsnet’s Shi Davidi noted on Instagram, the falling ice punctured the roof.

Per Davidi, the Jays set up three tarp mats under the hole in right field as well as five other covers along the edge of the infield.

The Jays last played on Friday, when they beat the Indians 8-4 in their series opener in Cleveland. Saturday and Sunday’s games were postponed and will be made up in a double-header on May 3.

Update (9:16 PM ET): Aaaaaand it’s over. Just like that. Starlin Castro led off the eighth inning with a solo home run to left field. That ends the shutout bid as well, obviously.

Padres starter Chris Paddack has kept the Marlins hitless through seven innings on Wednesday evening in Miami. The right-hander has allowed two base runners on a throwing error and a walk while striking out seven on 82 pitches.

The Padres’ offense provided Paddack with three runs of support, all coming in the fourth on Greg Garcia‘s RBI single and a two-run home run by Austin Hedges.

Paddack, 23, entered Wednesday’s start carrying a 2.84 ERA with an 87/18 K/BB ratio across 82 1/3 innings in his rookie campaign.

Among all 30 teams, the Padres are the only one without a no-hitter. They came into the league in 1969. The Marlins were last victims of a no-hitter on September 28, 2014 when Jordan Zimmermann — then with the Nationals — accomplished the feat.
