Rays halt Cubs' seven-game win streak

(TSX / STATS) -- ST. PETERSBURG, Fla -- Rays starter Blake 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.

The Rays (74-78) kept alive their slim hopes of an American League wild card, moving within four games of the Minnesota Twins with 10 games remaining and four other teams between them.

The first-place Cubs (84-67) had their longest win streak of the season end, and their lead over the second-place Brewers slipped to three games in the National League Central pending Milwaukee's result Wednesday night. Chicago heads to Milwaukee for a huge four-game series this weekend.
