Pannone stellar for Jays in first start

TORONTO—Thomas Pannone realized early that he was cruising through innings and keeping Baltimore's hitters off-balance in his first major league start.

Gausman sharp as Orioles edge Jays

TORONTO—Blue Jays' manager John Gibbons couldn't have envisioned that the first pitch of last night's game would be the difference-maker in Toronto's 2-1 loss to the Baltimore Orioles.

Adam Jones doubled in Tim Beckham—who reached on a throwing error by Josh Donaldson on Marcus Stroman's first pitch—then scored on a Trey Mancini triple for a 2-0 lead.
