Blake Snell did not finish a job after two strikes, losing 8-4 to the Pittsburgh Pirates at San Diego Patres on Tuesday.
Snell came to the mount with a two-point cushion as Patres scored two points in the first round of the battle, a thank you to Trent Grisham for a solo Homer.
However, Snell got into trouble and gave Jacob Stallings a double double to give the Pirates a 3-2 lead.
Snell eventually allowed three runs, three wins and two walks in two-thirds of an inning.
Stallings finished the game with four appearances and three wins in three reserves.
