Rays' Blake Snell: Strikes out eight in loss

Snell (8-4) pitched five innings Thursday, allowing four runs on five hits and four walks while striking out eight in a 4-3 loss to the Yankees.

Snell had won his last four decisions heading in to this tough matchup, last taking a loss May 13 against Baltimore. That was also the last time he allowed more than two earned runs. Even with the rough outing, the 25-year-old lefty has a stellar 2.58 ERA across 87.1 innings with a 97:29 K:BB. However, things won't get any easier for Snell, as his next start is slated to come Tuesday against the Astros.
