Blake Snell allowed one run on two hits and no walks while striking out nine over five 1/3 innings during Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Dodgers in Game 6 of the World Series. He did not factor into the decision.
Snell was sharp over five 1/3 innings and was pulled in the sixth after allowing a single Austin Barnes. The Dodgers tacked on two runs off reliever Nick Anderson in sixth inning and took the lead 2-1. Snell was visibly upset from being removed, "for most of that game, I was dominating every outcome possible," said Snell. "It's going to take a while to get over this." Rays' manager Kevin Cash pulled Snell from the game despite the left-hander dominating the Dodgers for most of the contest. "Yes, I regret it because it didn't work out," said Cash. "I thought the process was right." The 27-year-old threw a total of 73 pitches, landing 48 for strikes. Snell finished 2020 postseason strong, owning a (2-2) record, 3.03 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 37 strikeouts over 29 2/3 innings.
