All the individual stuff I’ll look at later.”Snell (19-5) lost his bid when Jose Ramirez led off the seventh with his 38th homer.

Choi hit a winning homer off Brad Hand in the ninth inning on Monday night.“Every at-bat I can hit a home run you feel great, especially today helping to contribute to a win for Snell,” Choi said through a translator.Cleveland’s Edwin Encarnacion stared and shook his head after a high and inside pitch from Snell in the fourth.“It was nothing,” Encarnacion said. “No hard feelings. He tried to go inside. No problem.”Carrasco (16-9) gave up three runs and six hits in seven innings.Josh Donaldson, acquired by Cleveland from Toronto on Aug. 31 http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-danny-duffy-jersey , hit into a double play as a pinch-hitter in the eighth.
