Rays vs. Athletics, game one recap: Rays bats, pitching, building a streak

Matt Moore well supported. The Rays got a run early. Logan Forsythe led off the game by flipping a liner the other way into right field for a single. Forsythe then advanced to second on a swinging bunt up the line by Brad Miller, and to third on a hard-hit Evan Longoria grounder to the second baseman. Corey Dickerson, batting fourth, hit the ball much less hard than Longo had, but his grounder dribbled through a hole and into right field, and Forsythe was able to trot home. The Rays added a run in the second inning, and while the first one may have came on an anticlimactic dribbler, run...

These days, Dewon Brazelton's happy being a doting dad

ST. PETERSBURG — It is a magnificent throw, one Evan Longoria makes before every home game right after playing catch with Logan Forsythe. The Rays third baseman walks through the gate behind home plate and tosses the baseball to a young fan.

Evan Longoria clears the yard with a big home run as Rays blowout the Rockies

Evan Longoria turned on a pitch like a fireman's axe in the third inning Tuesday. The Tampa Bay Rays third baseman -- whom the Rockies notoriously shrugged at in 2006 -- hit a home run so far, it left the yard.

Rays vs. Rockies, game two recap: Baseball is easy

How did the Rays lose all those other games? After being forced by rain to wait over two hours for the game to start, the Rays offense apparently could wait no longer once the game finally did begin. Logan Forsythe doubled down the line to lead off the game, moved to third on a soft grounder, and then came home when Evan Longoria slapped a single against the shift. In the third inning, the Rays got on the board again. Oswaldo Arcia walked on four pitches, and while Blake Snell gave a pretty poor attempt at a bunt, striking out on three pitches, the bunt wasn’t needed. Forsythe lined a...

Rays trade rumors: Dodgers talking with Rays, but not about Evan Longoria

Could Evan Longoria return to Southern California? The face of the franchise is being mentioned as the Dodgers throw their hat into the ring for a potential Rays fire sale, and the rumor has some merit. Longoria is about to be "on the wrong side of 30," as they say, while the Dodgers will need a new 3B after this season. But all of this chatter is coming exclusively from Jon Morosi, who was stoking the flames with a full article on the potential match last night: With Longoria's production this year, more teams believe his contract is valued properly. And from a purely economic...

Tampa Bay Rays news and links: Could Rays trade Evan Longoria to the Dodgers?

(If Morosi can do it, so can I.) Haha. You clicked. Probably they won’t. Not an amazing fit. But a big name player and a popular team! The Rays lost again last night, but at least they’ll get Steve Pearce back. #Rays option Franklin to AAA, will activate Pearce on Tuesday— Marc Topkin (@TBTimes_Rays) July 19, 2016 But let’s stay positive and get in a bit of trivia from the Rays twitter. Last night, with two triples by Evan Longoria and one by Tim Beckham, was the first three-triple Rays game since 2009. Who for the Rays hit them on July 31, 2009? (answer at bottom) Links: Sam...

Rays 5, O's 2: Rays Finally Win!!!

Tampa Bay rides four homers to a much needed victory! Woooooo hoo!!!! After losing 24 of their last 27 games, the Rays finally broke an 8-game losing streak today in grand fashion. Four home runs did the trick as the Rays pounded their way to victory off the bats of Evan Longoria (twice!), Oswaldo Arcia and Brad Miller. Evan Longoria kicked off the fun in the bottom of the 1st, as he launched a Dylan Bundy fastball into the left field seats to tie the game at one. Oswaldo Arcia knocked one out to left as well, for two runs in the second, to put the Rays up 3-1. Brad Miller joined in the...
