Cy Snell, Tommy Pham hurt again, the Nationals made a couple of trades

MLB: Kansas City Royals at Tampa Bay Rays Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Last night, the Tampa Bay Rays were once again victorious over the Kansas City Royals, taking home a 4-1 victory.

Blake Snell was dominant for Tampa Bay, registering six innings of one run ball on just four hits, racking up 11 strikeouts. Adam Kolarek, Chaz Roe, and Sergio Romo would all pitch scoreless innings of relief to close out the game.

On the offensive side of things, several Rays had great days with Willy Adames and Tommy Pham both knocking three hits apiece, meanwhile Mallex Smith, C.J. Cron, and Michael Perez also had multi-hit days. Unfortunately, the injury bug bit the Rays again with Tommy Pham leaving game early due to a dislocated finger. He is day-to-day with the injury.

Tonight, the Rays will play the third game of their four game set with the Royals. Ryne Stanek will open for Tampa Bay, he will be opposed by Jakob Junis.
