Padres SP Blake Snell struck out eight in 5 2/3 innings during a 1-0 loss to the Giants Monday. He gave up a run on six hits and two walks in another solid performance.
Despite dropping to 4-6 on the season, Snell continued pitching well of late. Early in June, the veteran lefty had an ERA of 5.68. He has worked to lower that down to 3.96 after Monday's effort. The Padres are yet to get their offense going after acquiring Juan Soto and Josh Bell. It stands to reason the offense will come alive eventually. Until then, fantasy managers will just have to take strong performances without the win. Snell will look to keep the good times going at Washington this weekend.
