Longoria Makes 3 Errors, Blue Jays Top Rays
TORONTO (AP) — Jose Bautista, Adam Lind and Brett Lawrie homered and the Toronto Blue Jays took advantage of a three-error game by normally sure-handed Evan Longoria to beat the Tampa Bay Rays 7-3 on Tuesday night.
It was a career worst performance for Longoria, the AL’s Gold Glove third baseman in 2009 and 2010. He became the seventh player in Rays history to make three errors in a game.
Matt Joyce homered for the Rays, who have lost six of eight.
Ricky Romero (2-0) allowed three runs and eight hits in six-plus innings to win.
