Longoria leaves game due to slight soreness in left hamstring

24

June

Update 9:33 p.m. The Rays are saying that Evan Longoria left Wednesday's game in the eighth inning as a precautionary measure after he felt slight soreness in his left hamstring.

Longoria had missed six starts earlier this month due to tightness in the hamstring.

***

Rays third baseman Evan Longoria has left Wednesday's game, and was replaced by Willy Aybar to start the top of the eighth inning.

Longoria was 2-for-3 at the plate. The last play he was in on was fielding a Pedro Feliz grounder to third in the seventh, and throwing out Matt Stairs at second for the fielder's choice to end the inning.

More the details as they come.
