Surging Rays take 5-0 lead at midpoint

10/10/2010

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Evan Longoria greeted Texas Rangers reliever Derek Holland with a 391-foot blast into the left-field bleachers to give the surging Tampa Bay Rays a 5-0 lead after 4 1/2 innings.

The homer came with two outs, the second time in two games that Holland hasn't been able to close out an inning.

As the Rays lineup continues to break out of the offensive funk they experienced in their home ballpark, the Rangers are now suffering the same fate in their park.
