Longoria, Rays hold off Royals

St. Petersburg, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Evan Longoria's go-ahead single in the sixth inning led the Tampa Bay Rays to a 4-3 victory over the Kansas City Royals Tuesday in the second tilt of a three-game set.

Brandon Guyer finished 3-for-4 with two runs scored and James Loney and Logan Forsythe each drove in a run for the Rays, who have won four of their last five games.

Brad Boxberger (2-1) earned the win after tossing 1 2/3 scoreless innings of relief for starter Jeremy Hellickson, who gave up just one run on six hits in 4 1/3 frames in his season debut.

Lorenzo Cain tripled among his four hits and Salvador Perez drove in three runs for Kansas City, which has dropped three of its last four.
