ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Tampa Bay Rays ace Blake Snell lost his no-hit in the seventh inning when Cleveland’s Jose Ramirez hit a leadoff homer.

Snell, who is seeking a major league-leading 19th win, struck out eight and walked two through seven innings. He received a standing ovation as he walked to the dugout after the seventh.

Tampa Bay leads 3-1.
