UPDATE: Jose Ramirez led off the seventh for Cleveland, took Snell to a 3-0 count, Snell evened it up at 3-2 and then . . . Jose Ramirez broke it up with a homer to left field. It was Ramirez’s first homer since August 17. With it he ended that home run drought, the no-hitter and the shutout.
As you were.
2:46 PM: Tampa Bay Rays starter Blake Snell is having a fantastic season. One that has him in the hunt for the Cy Young Award. He’s bolstering that case so far today down in St. Petersburg, where he has a no-hitter going through six innings against the Cleveland Indians. The Rays are up 3-0.
Snell has walked two batters so the perfecto is out of reach, but he’s struck out eight. He’s currently at 82 pitches, so even if he keeps the Indians hitless, there’s a chance he’ll run out of gas before he can complete this bad boy, but we’ll see. His season high pitch total is 114, which he’s reached twice.
The last time anyone no-hit the Indians was when Ervin Santana of the Angels did it back in 2011.
Coming into today’s game, Snell was 18-5 with a 2.06 ERA in 27 starts.
LOS ANGELES (AP) Burglars caused $10,000 worth of damage to Los Angeles Dodgers star Yasiel Puig‘s home while attempting to steal a safe.
According to the Los Angeles Police Department, the suspects broke into Puig’s San Fernando Valley home Tuesday night. They ransacked the residence, found a safe in the second-floor master bedroom, and dragged it downstairs to the front door.
Police said Thursday that the suspects then fled, leaving the safe in the entry way. An inventory is being conducted to determine what else was taken. Puig was at Dodger Stadium for a game on Tuesday.
“I (did) not sleep too much yesterday,” Puig said Wednesday, without offering details about the latest incident.
Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying three suspects, including the driver of a black four-door Toyota vehicle with paper license plates.
Police say the same suspects are believed to have been involved in another burglary attempt at Puig’s home on Aug. 30.
Previous break-ins at Puig’s residences occurred in March 2017 and during Game 7 of last year’s World Series.
