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.
