Blake Snell helps Tampa Bay Rays win 8th straight game and hand Boston Red Sox 1st sweep of season
Blake Snell had his best fastball and that was more than enough against baseball's best team.
The All-Star lefty pitched two-hit ball over six innings and the Tampa Bay Rays won their eighth straight game Sunday, beating Boston 9-1 to hand the major league-leading Red Sox their first sweep of the season.
Snell (16-5) allowed one run and struck out eight.
He has given up no more than one earned run in 14 consecutive starts at home, and he has a 1.08 ERA in four outings against the Red Sox this year.
