It’s not often that Evan Longoria makes mistakes, but in the bottom of the 9th inning with the Rays trailing the Orioles 6-2, Longoria made a base running gaffe. Longoria hit a deep fly ball to left center off the wall and on his way to second, passed teammate Ben Zobrist, who hesitated to make sure the ball wasn’t caught. The camera angles were never clear enough to show whether Longoria actually passed Zobrist, but he was called out and awarded an RBI for driving in Sean Rodriguez.
Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts also suffered a hamstring injury attempting his first steal of the 2013 season. The Orioles held on to win, 6-3.
