ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Tampa Bay Rays slugger Evan Longoria had another memorable regular-season finale.

Longoria hit three home runs for the Rays in Wednesday night's game against the playoff-bound Baltimore Orioles. He hit solo shots off Chris Tillman in the first and fourth innings, and added another bases-empty drive during the sixth against Jake Arrieta.

Longoria had two homers in Game 162 last season, including an extra-inning walk-off drive that propelled the Rays to the AL wild card.

It was Longoria's second career three-homer game. The other came on Sept. 18, 2008, against Minnesota.
