TORONTO (AP) The Tampa Bay Rays simply couldn't touch Toronto reliever Thomas Pannone.
Pannone became the 89th different pitcher in major league history to strike out the side on nine pitches, setting down the Rays in the fifth inning Sunday.
Pannone became the third Toronto pitcher to accomplish the feat, joining Roger Clemens (1997) and Steve Delabar (2013).
Pannone wound up pitching three innings and struck out four without allowing a runner in Toronto's 8-4 loss.
