Longoria hit an eighth-inning solo blast off Boston reliever Clay Buchholtz that broke a 3-3 tie and proved to be the game-winner Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

The big fly was Longoria's 31st of the year and flew an impressive 434 feet to left-center field. It also came after catcher Luke Maile tied the game with a two-run home run the inning prior, putting an emotional dagger in a Red Sox team that is fighting for a playoff spot. The Rays are just 56-75 this season, but Longoria has been great, hitting .287/.337/.549. The .549 slugging mark is a career best for Longoria, who turned 30 years old last October.

Longoria went 1-for-5 with a game-tying solo homer, his 30th, in Wednesday's 4-3 extra-inning victory over the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

The slugging third baseman's 436-foot shot in the eighth was crucial to the eventual victory, as it knotted up the score at 3-3. Longoria's renaissance season now includes his first 30-homer tally since 2013, and fourth overall of his career. The 30-year-old also has three homers over his last five games and seven overall in August.

Longoria went 2-for-3 with an RBI single, solo homer, walk and two runs overall in Saturday's 8-2 victory over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

He got the scoring on the day started by plating Corey Dickerson in the first with a single, and then blasted his second homer in the last four games in the sixth. Factoring in Saturday's production, Longoria is now just five homers away from equaling the career-best 33 he tallied back in a spectacular 2009 season.

Longoria went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a run scored and four RBI in Sunday's 12-3 romp over the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

He's the career leader in hits (74) and RBI (47) among visiting players in the new Yankee Stadium and only Jose Bautista has hit more home runs there as a visitor than Longoria's 15. The Rays' third baseman padded those totals in impressive fashion this weekend, going 7-for-11 with a homer and six RBI over the three games. Fortunately for the Rays' third baseman and anyone with fantasy shares in him, he hasn't seen the last of Yankee Stadium this year -- Tampa Bay returns for a four-game set there in mid-September.
