Snell (21-5) allowed no runs on three hits and two walks over 6.2 innings while recording the win over the Blue Jays on Sunday. He struck out 11. Snell was outstanding again, winning his ninth consecutive start. The left-hander permitted only three singles and during his nine-start winning streak has given up only six earned runs in 46 innings. The 25-year-old has a sterling 1.90 ERA and a 0.96 WHIP this season, and his next scheduled start is Friday at home against these same Blue Jays.
Snell (20-5) allowed one hit in five scoreless innings in a win over the Rangers on Tuesday, striking out five and walking two. Snell was stellar once again, earning his eighth consecutive win and his 20th win on the year. He becomes just the second Rays pitcher to tally 20 wins in a season (David Price won 20 games in 2012) and he's the only pitcher thus far to reach the mark in the majors this year. Snell also became just the 12th pitcher this year to break the 200-strikeout threshold, doing so in only 169 innings pitched. The left-hander's 1.97 ERA trails only Jacob deGrom (1.78) in the majors and his .179 batting average against leads all starting pitchers. His next start will be a matchup with the Blue Jays in Toronto this weekend.
Snell (19-5) picked up the win Wednesday against the Indians, allowing one run on one hit and two walks while striking out nine across seven innings. Snell was dominant in this one, carrying a no-hitter into the seventh inning before serving up a leadoff solo homer to Jose Ramirez. He's now won seven straight, and his 19 wins are the most in the majors. The southpaw also owns an impressive 2.03 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 10.7 K/9 through 28 starts this season, putting him firmly in the AL Cy Young discussion. He'll look to keep it rolling in his next start, which will come on the road against the Rangers.
Snell (18-5) picked up the win in Friday's 14-2 rout of the Orioles, allowing two runs on five hits over 5.1 innings while striking out nine. The southpaw's stellar season continues. Snell has given up more than two runs in a start only four times in 27 trips to the mound, and he's put himself firmly in Cy Young contention by being among the AL leaders in wins (tied for first with Corey Kluber), ERA (second to Chris Sale), WHIP (fourth) and strikeouts (ninth). Snell will get a chance to bolster his case further in a home matchup against Carlos Carrasco and Cleveland on Wednesday.
Snell (16-5) allowed one run on two hits and two walks while striking out eight over six innings as he secured the victory Sunday against Boston. Snell tossed a gem against a tough Red Sox lineup, giving up just one run in the sixth inning as the Rays cruised to a 9-1 win. Since returning from the disabled list Aug. 4, he's gone 4-0 while allowing three runs and piling up 34 punchouts across 26 innings (five starts). Snell owns a sparkling 2.05 ERA with a 168:53 K:BB through 145 frames this season.
