Blake Snell flirted with a no-hitter while leading the Tampa Bay Rays to their fourth straight win, all against playoff contenders.
Snell struck out 10 and allowed just one hit over seven innings as the Rays crushed the Nationals, 11-0. Snell's no-hit bid ended when Anthony Rendon led off the seventh with a double.
Kevin Kiermaier's grand slam capped Tampa Bay's six-run second that chased Gio Gonzalez from the mound. Former Nat Wilson Ramos added a pair of home runs and three RBIs for the Rays.
The Nationals have dropped eight of their last 12, including a victory in the resumption of their May 15 suspended game against the Yankees.
