Sep. 12 8:24 PM PT9:24 PM MT10:24 PM CT11:24 PM ET23:24 ET3:24 GMT11:24 8:24 PM MST10:24 PM EST10:54 PM VEN7:24 UAE (+1)10:24 PM CT-Blake Snell allowed one run on two hits and two walks in 5.0 innings as the Tampa Bay Rays defeated the New York Yankees 2-1 on Tuesday.

Despite his glaring lack of victories, Snell (2-6) is 2-1 with a 2.39 ERA over his last four starts while yielding two runs or less in three of those outings. He should have a chance for a win when he faces the AL's worst team, the White Sox, next Friday.

Snell struck out four, ending the game with a 4.87 ERA and 1.55 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Snell pitched well enough to be in position for an elusive first win of 2017, but was denied once more when Sergio Romo gave up a go-ahead two-run homer in the sixth inning.
