Blake Snell, right, pitches for the Tampa Bay Rays
Former Shorewood pitcher Blake Snell was the winning pitcher for the Tampa Bay Rays when they beat the Seattle Mariners 3-0 Sunday at the Rays' home field in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Snell, a 24-year-old left-hander, struck out eight Mariner batters while giving up two hits and two bases on balls in seven shutout innings.

This was Snell's second straight victory after he defeated Toronto Tuesday, August 15, when he struck out seven batters and gave up four earned runs in six innings.

The two victories gave Snell a 2-6 season record after he had been winless in his first 14 starts with the Rays.

Snell had a 6-8 record last season. He has spent part of each season with AAA Durham of the International League.

He had a 9-0 record as a Shorewood senior in 2011, when the Thunderbirds were state 3A runners up.
