Longoria carried the Tampa Bay offense during Monday's tiebreaker game, going 3-for-4 with a home run, two runs, and two RBI.
Longoria's big night should be about as surprising as the Rays' win. The star third baseman and his team seem to have a flair for the dramatic, with Longoria memorably hitting a total of five Game 162 home runs in 2011 and 2012. He now has a Game 163 dinger for his highlight reel, with a play-in game against the Indians scheduled for Wednesday. Should the Rays win that contest, they'll go on to face Boston in the ALDS. As for Longoria, he finishes the season with a .269 batting average, 32 home runs, 91 runs, 88 RBI, and one stolen base.
