Rookie starter Snell struggles as Astros down Rays 6-2

HOUSTON (AP) Tampa Bay rookie Blake Snell struggled to throw strikes in his last three outings, piling up 13 walks over that span.

He didn't walk a batter Saturday night, but not much else went right for the 23-year-old in a 6-2 loss to the Houston Astros.

Snell allowed a season-high nine hits and five runs - four earned - in three-plus innings for his third loss in four starts. He exited with a bruise on his lower left leg after being hit by a sharp grounder from Marwin Gonzalez to start the fourth.
