Blake Snell had a solid outing in Game 2 of the World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night.
The Tampa Bay Rays pitcher carried a no-hitter into the fifth before it was broken up by a two-run home run from Chris Taylor. Snell lasted 4 2/3 innings giving up just the two earned runs on as many hits. He also racked up nine strikeouts.
