Longoria went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a run scored in Sunday's 6-0 win over the Orioles. Longoria did his damage during a five-run eighth inning, driving in the frame's first run before eventually scoring from third thanks to Trevor Plouffe's bases-loaded walk. The soon-to-be 32-year-old third baseman finishes the season with a .261/.313/.424 line.
Longoria is out of the lineup against Baltimore on Saturday. Despite homering Friday, Longoria will receive a day off following four straight starts. In his place, Daniel Robertson will pick up a start at the hot corner.
Longoria went 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Friday's 7-0 win over the Orioles. Longoria went deep for the second time in the last six contests and reached the 20-homer mark for the fifth consecutive season. The 31-year-old has seen a general power downturn in 2017, but he's at least enjoyed a bit of a resurgence in that department in September. After blasting just one round tripper in August, he's tripled that figure this month.
Longoria is out of the lineup Sunday against the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Having started every game since Aug. 12, the Rays will give Longoria a well-deserved day off Sunday. Daniel Robertson will hit ninth and start at the hot corner in place of Longoria. The team has Monday off, so Longoria will likely be back in action for Tuesday's series opener against the Yankees.
Longoria went 1-for-5 with a solo homer in Friday's 8-3 win over the Orioles. Longoria's 353-foot shot to left in the third extended the Rays' lead to 5-2, serving as his first round tripper since Sept. 6 and only his third since the beginning of August. The veteran third baseman has had a solid month at the plate despite the lack of pop (four extra-base hits over 80 plate appearances), hitting .284 and driving in 11 runs.
