Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Blake Snell pitched 1.2 innings in Tuesday night’s MLB All-Star Game, striking out three batters.
Snell’s first ever All-Star appearance got off to a shaky start with a first pitch home run by Wilson Contreras of the Chicago Cubs.
After that moment, Snell settled in, recording five outs on 39 pitches.
He was pulled with two outs in the 4th inning after walking Atlanta’s Nick Markakis.
Snell struck out Colorado’s Nolan Arenado, Los Angeles’ Matt Kemp and Washington’s Bryce Harper.
Snell was the only Rays player to play in this year’s All-Star Game.
Catcher Wilson Ramos was voted the American League starting catcher but suffered a hamstring injury last Saturday.
Manager Kevin Cash was an assistant coach for the A.L., working with Houston manager, A.J. Hinch.
