Steve Delabar Throws Immaculate Inning

Blue Jays reliever Steve Delabar has a taste for the immaculate! Delabar struck out all three batters he faced on just NINE pitches last night. He is the 48th pitcher to ever do so (and the first Blue Jay!).

From a shattered elbow, to Tommy John surgery, to an impressive career comeback, Steve Delabar's story keeps getting better. He is also the first MLB pitcher to ever record four strikeouts in an extra inning and first Blue Jays player to win the Final Vote for the All-Star Game. I can’t wait to see what he’ll do next!
