On the season, he carries a .253/.323/.391 slash line with 15 home runs and 66 RBI.

Evan Longoria went 2-for-4 with a three-run double in Friday's win over the Twins.

With the bases-clearing double, Longoria now has 591 RBI for his career. That puts him just one behind Carl Crawford's franchise record. The 28-year-old had a disappointing first half, but fantasy owners will have to hope that he can find his power stroke down the stretch. He's currently sporting the lowest fly ball rate of his career, so it's no sure thing.
