Long went 2-for-4 in a loss to the Angels on Saturday.

The rookie now has a trio of two-hit efforts in six June games, a stretch during which he's boosted his average 19 points. Long has performed reasonably well during his first exposure to major-league arms, slashing .230/.329/.328 over 70 plate appearances. While his big-league stint may be on the verge of coming to an end with the expected early week return of Dee Gordon (wrist) from the injured list, the experience Long has gained during his current tenure figures to serve him well over the long haul.
