DENVER -- The Tampa Bay Rays waited 41 days to end their road futility, so a couple extra hours didnt bother them.When they finally got going, it didnt take long to seize control.Blake Snell waited out severe weather to hold Colorado to one hit over six strong innings, Evan Longoria homered and drove in three runs and Tampa Bay beat the Rockies 10-1 on Tuesday night to end an 11-game road losing streak.Snell (2-4) struck out nine and Matt Andriese pitched the final three innings for his first save. Steve Pearce also homered in his return from the disabled list for the Rays, who ended the third longest road losing streak in club history.It feels good, Snell said. I definitely think were turning it around, pieces are coming back. I feel like were going to get it going.Tampa Bay had dropped 25 of 29 games since June 15 to fall to 23 games under .500.Heavy rain and lightning delayed the start of the game by 2 hours, 1 minute. The late start didnt bother the Rays, who ended the longest road losing streak in the majors this season. Their last road win was June 8 at Arizona.They broke out against Rockies starter Tyler Chatwood (8-6). Longorias RBI single in the first got Tampa Bay on the board, and after consecutive doubles in the third, he launched a mammoth home run onto the concourse in left field that bounced out of Coors Field.The homer, his 22nd, went an estimated 462 feet and gave the Rays a 5-0 lead. It is the longest home run by a Rays player since J.P. Arencibias 464-foot blast at Detroit on Sept. 7, 2015.Thats a bomb in any park, Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash said of Longorias shot. That ball went a long way.They tacked on another run on Kevin Kiermaiers RBI double later in the third and Pearces two-run homer capped a three-run ninth off reliever Gonzalez Germen.Snell didnt allow a run for the first time in his seven starts. The only hit he allowed was a leadoff single by Charlie Blackmon in the fourth, and he stranded him at third by fanning Nolan Arenado and getting Ryan Raburn to fly out.Weve been extremely positive with everything Blake has done since hes been here, Cash said. This justifies it, this type of outing. Its a little unfair to expect a ton out of a guy making his debut. Today he put it together and we saw the elite pitcher weve heard about for quite some time.Snell said he didnt use his curveball much because he didnt have a good feel for it, so he went to his slider and elevated his fastball to keep Colorados hitters off balance.I feel its a hard pitch to hit, especially when theyre looking down for sliders, Snell said. Fastball up in the zone is hard to get to.Only four Rockies hitters reached base against Snell. Trevor Story spoiled the bid for a shutout with his 23rd homer in the ninth.TRAINERS ROOMRays: Pearce (strained right hamstring) was reinstated from the 15-day disabled list and OF Nick Franklin was optioned to Triple-A Durham. ... RHP Brad Boxberger (oblique) will make another rehab appearance Thursday.Rockies: LHP Chris Rusin (left shoulder strain) allowed one run on four hits in four innings in his second rehab start for Triple-A Albuquerque.HOME COOKEDChatwood has been masterful on the road but has struggled at home this season. The righty is 3-6 with a 6.14 ERA at Coors Field after allowing seven runs in four-plus innings Tuesday night. Conversely, he is 5-0 with a 1.30 ERA on the road.At some point, you got to make an adjustment and I didnt make that adjustment tonight, Chatwood said.UP NEXTTampa Bay righty Chris Archer(4-13) has lost his last six decisions and is one shy of matching his career-high losing streak. Colorado left-hander Jorge De La Rosa (6-6) is 4-2 with a 2.68 in six starts since returning to the rotation on June 14. Vapormax Hvid Dame Danmark . -- Mike Smith never saw his first NHL goal go in.

If you want to know what a hungry fan base looks like, just take a gander at the Pistons 53-spot pole vault from last year. This team is armed with the NBAs Next Big Thing and one of the leagues youngest nuclei, and you get the sense that fans know their journey is just getting started.Whats goodStan Van Gundy has been making the right turns over his entire tenure as Pistons coach and president, so its no surprise that he earned one of the teams highest rankings, at 27th. It was just two years ago that the Pistons were ranked No. 105 in these rankings and experiencing their third consecutive sub-30-win season. Now, the team boasts a young, playoff-caliber roster with some cap space. While everyone else is playing small ball, Van Gundy cant get enough of the bigs: Drummond, Marjanovic, Leuer, Ellenson, Morris, Baynes. This roster earned a 48-spot jump this year, thanks partly to its play, sure, but also because of things such as participation in Slow Roll Detroit, which saw the team bike around the city with fans last year.Whats badFor all that has gone right for the Pistons of late, one thing cant be ignored: location, location, location. The Palace is more than 30 miles from downtown Detroit and 45 miles from the citys busiest airport.dddddddddddd In other words, it would require a 40-60 minute drive to get from The Palace to Ford Field or Comerica Park. The Pistons wrapped a three-year, $40 million renovation job in time for the 2014-15 season, and that addressed the scoreboard, sound system and Wi-Fi. It bumped the stadium experience ranking up 21 spots this year, to 65th, but thats still the Pistons worst placing. Now, if only they could find a large enough flatbed truck to transport the whole arena some place more convenient.Whats newLast season, the NBA blessed the Pistons with zero national TV appearances. Only the Nuggets and 76ers were also completely blacked out, and the Pistons recorded more wins than those two combined. Oops. At least fans were treated to tickets that were almost $25 below average! With average stubs at $31.42, Motown is looking at the third cheapest seats in the league. That isnt a bad price to see Andre Drummond make us rethink what we know about basketball and physics (see: 25-and-29 vs. the Pacers, four offensive rebounds in 11 (!) seconds against the Bucks, five fouls against in nine seconds vs. the Rockets). Good news, Detroit fans: Drummond isnt going anywhere, after signing a five-year, $130 million deal this offseason. Combining great play, cheap prices and a long-awaited successful season? Thatll get you a 53-spot bump in bang for the buck.Next: Golden State Warriors?| Full rankings ' ' '
