Rays halt Cubs' seven-game win streak

(TSX / STATS) -- ST. PETERSBURG, Fla -- For almost half the season, Tampa Bay Rays starter Blake Snell couldn't find a way to earn a victory. Now he can't lose.

Snell threw seven innings of two-hit shutout baseball, and Tampa Bay ended the Chicago Cubs' seven-game win streak, bouncing back with an 8-1 win on Wednesday night at Tropicana Field.

Snell, who didn't earn a win in any of his first 15 starts this season, has now won four straight decisions and hasn't taken a loss in his last 10 starts.
