TORONTO — Blake Snell tied a Tampa Bay Rays record when he reached 20 wins Tuesday against the Texas Rangers.The left-hander will try for No. 21 on Sunday afternoon in the finale of a four-game series with the Toronto Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre. The Rays will be going for a split in the series after losing 5-2 on Saturday. They lead the season set 10-5.Snell allowed one hit in five innings against the Rangers in tying David Price’s club record for wins and becoming the first 20-game winner in the majors since 2016. Price won No. 20 in his final start of the season in 2012 and took the American League Cy Young Award. Obviously Nolan Arenado Jersey , Snell is one of the top contenders for the award this season.Article continues below ...Snell (20-5, 1.97 ERA) will face Blue Jays left-hander Ryan Borucki (4-4, 3.86).Snell helped the Rays (86-68) enter contention for a wild-card spot in the American League. Two losses in three games to the Blue Jays, however, has been a big setback for the Rays, who are on the verge of elimination.“We’ve had to play very well for the last couple of months and the wild card wasn’t in the discussion outside the clubhouse until recently,” Rays infielder Joey Wendle said after the game Saturday. “We played our tails off to get into contention and we’ll continue to do that and see what happens.”Snell has won eight consecutive decisions, tied for the second longest streak in franchise history behind Matt Moore’s nine from Sept. 29, 2012 to May 19 Charlie Blackmon Jersey , 2013. He has won a club-record eight straight starts (without a no-decision in between), the only pitcher to do that in the majors this season.The 25-year-old is 3-2 with a 3.86 ERA in six career starts against the Blue Jays and is 2-1 with a 4.08 ERA in four starts at the Rogers Centre. He has faced the Blue Jays once this season and was removed after five perfect innings on Aug. 10 at Toronto, his second start back from the disabled list. He threw only 47 pitches (33 strikes) in the outing.“It’s cool,” Snell said after winning No. 20. “It means we’ve been playing good team baseball when I pitch. Guys have been helping me — swinging it, playing defense, the bullpen has been coming in clutch. And I’ve been doing well as well. There’s a lot. I haven’t thought about it honestly.”Snell also emerged from his start against the Rangers with five strikeouts to reach 200 for the season.“Pretty special that he got his 20th win and 200th strikeout on the same day,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said. “He deserves all the credit that he’s getting right now. People are noticing for good reason. To go and get the wins he has against some really, really strong teams and what he’s done recently has to put him in strong consideration (for the Cy Young Award),” Cash said.Snell has defeated the Boston Red Sox three times http://www.rockiesfanproshop.com/authentic-jake-mcgee-jersey , the Houston Astros and the Cleveland Indians twice, and the Oakland A’s and New York Yankees once apiece.In Borucki, the Blue Jays have a promising young pitcher of their own. He is 1-1 with a 1.77 ERA in three starts in September. The rookie allowed two runs in six innings of a 4-0 loss on Sept. 4 in his only appearance against the Rays. He will be making the 16th start of his major league career Sunday.The Blue Jays are getting good play from some September callups such as Rowdy Tellez, who had three hits, including a two-run homer and three RBIs on Saturday.And left-hander Thomas Pannone improved his record to 4-1 with a 3.58 ERA after holding the Rays to two runs in 6 2/3 innings Saturday in his fifth major league start. It was the third straight quality start for the 24-year-old — all against good teams in the Indians, Yankees and Rays.“It definitely gives me the confidence that I know my stuff can play here facing good lineups, good hitters, and I’m turning them over pretty well,” Pannone said. “I just want to continue doing that.”The Blue Jays (71-84) have won six of their past eight games. TORONTO (AP) — Two bigs swings from Kendrys Morales made sure the Toronto Blue Jays stayed perfect at home against Baltimore.Morales homered twice Trevor Story Jersey , Marco Estrada pitched 5 1/3 innings to win his second straight start and the Blue Jays beat Baltimore 5-3 on Monday night, improving to 8-0 at home against the Orioles.Morales broke his bat on his one-out solo homer in the fourth, then added a three-run drive into the second deck in the fifth — both coming against Baltimore right-hander Andrew Cashner (4-11) — for his 22nd career multihomer game.“I guess maybe the wind was blowing out,” Morales said through a translator when asked about his first homer.And the second?“He just threw me a meatball and I hit it much better than the first one,” Morales said.Renato Nunez replied with a solo home run for the struggling Orioles, who have lost nine of their past 11.Toronto is 10-1 overall against Baltimore, five more wins than the Blue Jays have against any other opponent.Estrada (7-9) allowed three runs and seven hits, improving to 9-2 in 18 career games against Baltimore.“I was happy with the way I was locating,” Estrada said. “Maybe two or three hard hit balls Ian Desmond Jersey , but that’s going to happen. For the most part I felt like we were in control.”Ryan Tepera got four outs and Jaime Garcia struck out the only batter he faced. Tyler Clippard worked the eighth and Ken Giles finished for his 16th save in 16 opportunities.Baltimore became the first team mathematically eliminated from playoff contention when Oakland won later Monday.Toronto’s Kevin Pillar went 2 for 4 with two doubles and an RBI. On Sunday, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons publicly berated Pillar in the dugout after the outfielder ended the sixth inning by getting thrown out attempting to steal third. Toronto trailed the New York Yankees 6-2 at the time.After Pillar doubled in his first at bat Monday, Gibbons stared into the camera trained on his seat in Toronto’s dugout, then flashed a smile and a thumbs up.Cashner allowed five runs and seven hits in six innings to remain winless in four starts against Toronto this season.“You’ve got to get strike one,” Cashner said. “I worked behind a lot of guys which allowed them to just sit fastball.”Craig Gentry had three hits for the Orioles, while Chris Davis hit a sacrifice fly.ALL IN THE FAMILYBefore the game, Orioles OF Adam Jones tweeted a welcome message to new Blue Jays C Danny Jansen, who was promoted from Triple-A on Aug. 12.
