Snell (7-5) earned the win over Arizona on Tuesday, pitching seven scoreless and hitless innings during which he walked two batters and struck out 10.

Snell came within six outs of pitching his first career no-hitter, but manager Jayce Tingler elected to pull him from the game after 107 pitches. The fact that the left-hander threw a career-high 122 pitches in his previous outing likely contributed to his removal, and Snell said after the game that the decision was "just smart," according to AJ Cassavell of The 28-year-old punched out 10 batters for the second straight outing and induced an impressive 19 swinging strikes while extending his recent run of strong starts -- he has now allowed three or fewer runs in each of his past six outings, posting a 1.72 ERA and 54:12 K:BB across 36.2 innings over that stretch. Snell's next start will likely come at home against the Angels early next week.
