Rays ace Blake Snell ties AL strikeout r from Melissa Underwood's blog

The Rays may have found a new ace.Blake Snell tied an American League record Sunday in an outing Billy Hamilton Jersey against the Mariners by striking out the first seven batters he faced.Snell matched the mark set by former White Sox pitcher Joe Cowley of the White Sox from 1986, Jackie Robinson Jersey and was matched byCarlos Rodon in 2016.The all-time record is nine strikeouts to start a game, set by Mickey Welch for the New York Gothams in 1884.Snell Ken Griffey Jr. Jersey ultimately struck out 12 batters in six scorele s innings, giving him 88 punchouts already this season. With a sterling 2.36 ERA, Snell has looked like a Cy Young contender so far this year.Having allowed two runs or fewer in Zack Cozart Jersey all but two starts Johnny Bench 1983 Collection Practice Red Jersey this season, Snell, 25, not teammate Chris Archer, has looked like the dominant pitcher teams may try to acquire before the July 31 trade deadline.
