Rays Head Home On Losing Note
The Tampa Bay Rays lost to the Detroit Tigers 3-2 on a walk off bunt in the bottom of the 12th.
Matt Andriese (0-1, 4.58 ERA) takes the loss for the Rays who have lost three of their last four games after winning eight straight. With the loss the Rays finish their three city eight game road trip with a 5-3 mark and return home 13-16 on the season.
It was the Rays fourth straight 1-run game and 15th such game already this season. They are 5-10 overall in those games. The loss ends a streak of four straight series wins by the Rays. They were trying to win five series in a row for the first time since June 2014.
Warwick Saupold (1-0, 3.12 ERA) picks up the win for the Tigers who improve to 13-16 on the season.
Snell Continues Roll:
Blake Snell continued his dominant start to the season logging 6.2-innings allowing two earned runs on five hits. He struck out four batters and walked one. Although his line was solid, after the game Snell said he was frustrated. “First pitch strikes, I was frustrated with my stuff in general didn’t feel good today.” A mark of the top of the rotation pitcher is the ability to get batters out when they don’t have their best stuff. Something that Snell was able to do, which bodes well for his future.
