Longoria delivers for Rays in win over Rangers

Evan Longoria hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the eighth inning and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Texas Rangers 5-4 on Tuesday night.
With the Rays trailing by a run, Longoria gave Tampa Bay the
lead with his two-out drive off Arthur Rhodes (3-3) after Johnny
Damon reached on an opposite-field bloop single to left that
deflected off the glove of shortstop Elvis Andrus.
Longoria was back hitting fourth after three games as the
leadoff man, a move designed to help him work out of an offensive
Nelson Cruz scored from third on a wild pitch by Joel Peralta
(2-3) with two outs in the eighth as the Rangers took a 4-3 lead.
Sean Rodriguez and Matt Joyce also homered for the Rays.
