Johnson excited to play in 'home town'

OAKVILLE, Ont.—Dustin Johnson pulled on the Edmonton Oilers jersey with “Gretzky 99” on the back, lined up his shot, and drove over the water and on to the green at No. 7 on Glen Abbey Golf Course.

American through-and-through, the RBC Canadian Open is Johnson's home tournament by marriage, with future father-in-law Wayne Gretzky growing up in nearby Brantford, Ont.

TORONTO—As far as Josh Donaldson is concerned, the Toronto Blue Jays never should get shut out, let alone go without a hit.

Donaldson, Yangervis Solarte, and Justin Smoak had three-consecutive doubles in a four-run eighth inning as the Jays finished with 12 hits in a 5-2 win over Seattle—a day after Mariners' pitcher James Paxton threw a no-hitter at Rogers Centre.
