Evan Longoria homered and drove in four runs, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the New York Yankees 9-5 Saturday to send Michael Pineda to his sixth loss in his last seven decisions.
Longoria had a sacrifice fly during a three-run first, boosted the lead to 5-0 with a two-run homer in the second and chased Pineda with an RBI single in the fourth that made it 6-1.
Pineda (2-6) allowed six runs and nine hits in 3 2/3 innings. His 6.92 ERA is the highest among 104 qualifying pitchers in the major leagues.
Carlos Beltran hit a solo homer off Moore in the fourth for his 2,500th hit. He is the 99th major leaguer, 10th switch-hitter and fourth Puerto Rico-born player to reach the mark.
