Evan Longoria hit a pair of home runs, but it wasn't enough in Wednesday's 11-inning, 7-6 loss versus the Orioles.

Longoria smacked a two-run home run in the middle of a four-run third inning against Kevin Gausman. He then tacked on what proved to be an important -- though ultimately inconsequential -- insurance run with a solo home run off the foul pole in left field off of Darren O'Day. Longoria has gone yard three times in his last three games and now has 17 on the year with 61 RBI and a .268/.329/.426 triple-slash line.

Evan Longoria clubbed his 15th home run of the season in a 1-for-4 effort on Monday as the Rays beat the Orioles.

Longoria extended the Rays' lead to 5-0, taking Wei-Yin Chen deep in the fifth inning. Though his numbers are still above-average compared to league averages, the 29-year-old third baseman is near the end of another season that ranks as mediocre by his own standards. Longoria has a .267/.328/.415 triple-slash line with 58 RBI.
Aug 31 - 10:33 PM

Evan Longoria went 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in Sunday's loss to the A's.

Longoria couldn't find any traction against A's starter Kevin Graveman on Sunday, or the A's in general during this weekend series. The veteran third baseman is hit-less in his last 12 at-bats. For the season, he's slashing .270/.333/.412 with 13 homers and 55 RBI.
Aug 23 - 7:47 PM

Evan Longoria went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Mets.

Longoria's eighth-inning homer off Mets reliever Tyler Clippard put the Rays up 3-2, but the bullpen would relinquish that advantage with two runs allowed in the ninth inning. Tough loss aside, the veteran third baseman is quietly starting to heat up. Not only is he working on a seven-game hitting streak, he's also compiled multi-hit games in four of those seven contests and has homered in each of his last two games. For the season, he's slashing .281/.349/.443 with 13 home runs and 49 RBI.
Aug 7 - 10:25 PM

Evan Longoria finished 1-for-4 in Tuesday's rout of the Tigers, slugging a solo home run.

Longoria kickstarted a five-run eighth inning to blow the Tigers out of the water, taking Neftali Feliz out to right-center for a solo home run. The third baseman is on a modest six-game hitting streak, batting .268/.337/.420 with 11 home runs and 44 RBI on the year.
Jul 28 - 10:57 PM

Evan Longoria hit a solo home run, his only success in four at-bats, on Sunday as the Rays fell to the Orioles.

Longoria hit the first of back-to-back solo home runs with Logan Forsythe off of Wei-Yin Chen, helping bring the Rays within striking distance. It's his first dinger since July 7 and only his 10th of the year in another mediocre season. Longoria is batting .265/.333/.408 with 43 RBI.
Jul 26 - 3:59 PM

Evan Longoria went 1-for-5 with an RBI double in Wednesday afternoon's loss to the Phillies.

Longoria hit his RBI two-bagger in the fifth inning. It would be his only hit of the game. He also committed his seventh error of the season, one of three errors that the Rays made on the day. The month of July has been a house of horrors for the face of the franchise, as he's slashing just .212/.246/.303 over 71 at-bats since the calendar turned over. This has been the worst month of the season for the third baseman and his current value couldn't be much lower at this point.
Jul 22 - 5:30 PM

Evan Longoria went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in Thursday's loss to the Royals.

Longoria also struck out once in the contest. The veteran face of the Rays is hitting .281/.352/.423 with nine homers, 40 RBI and 38 runs scored. He might not be the offensive powerhouse that he once was, but he's been steady (if unspectacular) across 310 at-bats this season.
Jul 9 - 5:15 PM

Evan Longoria went 2-for-4 with a home run in Saturday's win over the Red Sox.

Jun 27 - 6:32 PM

Evan Longoria went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer in Saturday's win over the Indians.

Longoria took a Corey Kluber offering for a ride with two on and nobody out in the first inning. He also walked in the contest. Earlier in the week, the veteran third baseman was hit in the left wrist with a pitch, but x-rays came back negative and he didn't have to miss any time. It certainly didn't affect him on Saturday. Longoria's hitting .273/.350/.416 with seven homers and 32 RBI this season.
