So, how was your day? The Rays were hours from a clean getaway in April. They came away 15-8, in first place, a great start, capped by a 12th-inning walk-off win Monday against Seattle on a run-scoring single by Elliot Johnson, in for Evan Longoria, who left the game early and … Oops. Tuesday came and with it the news that Longoria, Mr. 162, will be out four weeks, maybe eight weeks, perhaps six weeks, with a partial tear of his left hamstring. We might be talking All-Star break. Well, so much for that safe, sound April.
Rays have to find a way sans Longoria
