Last night, the Tampa Bay Rays were shutout by the Cleveland Indians, snapping their franchise record, 12 game winning streak at home.

Tampa Bay mustered just four hits on the night. Tommy Pham extended his hitting streak with a single, Ji-Man Choi had a basehit after his walk-off blast on Monday night, and Joey Wendle had two hits, including a double. The Rays went 0-6 with runners in scoring position, while Cleveland went 0-8.

The two runs came via two solo home runs, both hit off of Tyler Glasnow, who was excellent after his horrific outing his last time out. Glasnow worked seven innings, yielding those two runs, allowing six hits, striking out three, and walking none. Vidal Nuno, Andrew Kittredge, and Jaime Schultz all delivered scoreless outings in relief.

The Oakland Athletics won their 5th game in a row last night, gaining a game on both the Rays and Mariners, who remained tied at 8.5 games back in the Wild Card chase with less than 20 games to go.

The Rays and Indians will play the finale of their series this afternoon with a 1:10 start time. Blake Snell will go for the Rays and he’ll be opposed by Carlos Carrasco.
