ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Minnesota Twins manager Paul Molitor will be happy not to have to play Evan Longoria again this season after Sundays series finale.Hes had a pretty good season against us, Molitor said after Longoria hit his 24th home run of the season as part of the Tampa Bay Rays 7-3 win over the Twins on Saturday night. I dont know what his totals are, but every time we get him out, Im relieved.In six games against the Twins, Longoria has six home runs this year. That matches the most of any major-league player this year against Minnesota. Clevelands Mike Napoli also has six, but in 13 games. Longoria has 14 career home runs against the Twins, his most against any non-division opponent.Hes made us pay, Molitor said. All six games, I think hes been a contributing factor.The Rays hit three more solo home runs in Saturdays win -- theyre on pace for a team-record 211 home runs this season, though manager Kevin Cash was also happy to see some small-ball scoring with multiple stolen bases and aggressive baserunning on wild pitches.Love the home runs, Cash said. But the way we have found some ways to manufacture some runs here of late has been really nice. We struggled with doing that for a lot of the season.The Rays are 6-3 on their homestand, which secures their first winning homestand of the season. The Arizona Diamondbacks are now the only team that has gone all season without at least one series win.The Rays will send Matt Andriese, literally stretching himself back out to be a starter after an extended stint in the Tampa Bay bullpen, to mound Sunday. His first start Tuesday saw him throw 58 pitches in four effective innings, and he should be able to work longer this time around.Andriese (6-2, 2.72) beat the Twins on June 4, despite giving up eight hits and three runs (two earned) in five innings. Last year, he struggled in relief against Minnesota, giving up five runs in three innings. Hell remember Twins leadoff hitter Brian Dozier, whos 3-for-5 against him with a home run and four RBI.Thats still better than Minnesotas Sunday starter, fellow right-hander Kyle Gibson, who is 0-4 for his career against the Rays with an 8.85 ERA, having allowed 20 earned runs in 20 1/3 innings. This season, Gibson is 3-6 with a 4.94 ERA, but hell need to be careful with Tampa Bays 3-4 hitters -- Longoria has a .400 career average against him and Brad Miller is at .455.The two teams, with nearly identical records at the bottom of the American League standings, go in opposite directions after Sundays game. Tampa Bay hits the road for a six-game swing in Toronto and New York, and the Twins return home for seven games against the Houston Astros and Kansas City Royals. Khyri Thomas Jersey .

Rob Manfred, baseballs chief operating officer, testified last week during the grievance filed by the players union to overturn Rodriguezs 211-game suspension. A person familiar with the hearing, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Associated Press on Saturday that Manfred testified the sport wasnt concerned whether Bosch distributed performance-enhancing drugs to minors because MLBs interest was his relationship with players under investigation. .

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Neither ranking points nor Zika, nor politics, nor an arduous ATP season could have kept Andy Murray from Rio.Although pro athletes withdrew from these Olympic Games over the past few months for a wide variety of reasons, the two-time Wimbledon champ and defending Olympic gold medalist held firm to his commitment. He took a week and a half off after Wimbledon to rest and begin preparation for Rio and beyond at the expense of missing tournaments like the Rogers Cup in Toronto last week, where 1,000 rankings points were forfeited for the 2015 champion.The Olympics means a lot to me, Murray said Thursday, two days after being named the flag-bearer for Great Britain at Fridays opening ceremonies. Thats why this is my priority. And yeah, I lost a few ranking points, but thats fine. I was willing to sacrifice that to give myself the best chance to do well here.The native Scot was also questioned about whether his political leanings factored into his decision after he spoke out in favor of Scottish independence more than a year ago, a referendum that was denied.Ive been competing for Great Britain since I was 10 years old, Murray said. It was the first time I traveled abroad. ... My record when I compete for my country speaks for itself. I love the feeling of competing for my country.Murray cited his Davis Cup victories for Britain and called the day he won his gold medal in singles and silver in mixed doubles with Laura Robson at the 2012 London Games one of the best days in my professional life.And Im going to try my best to make the country proud again after another good run, he added.Being named the flag-bearer makes Rio that much sweeter for Murray, a three-time Olympian who said he was humbled and speechless when told the news as he was getting into bed Tuesday night.By far its the proudest moment in my professional career, he said. I never, ever thought Id get the opportunity to do this. ... Ill remember it the rest of my life.The message was carried by Mark England, Great Britains chef de mission, who spoke of Murrays perseverance throughoout his career.ddddddddddddI was thinking so many things when he told me, Murray said. I couldnt absorb everything he said. I just kept saying, Thank you so much.Murray, 29, was equally flustered when the team gathered for photographs Wednesday night, when he had to carry the flag for the first time.Im going to blame the photographers for what happened last night because I was given directions and then I ended up putting the flag in front of Princess Annes face, Murray said to chuckles from the media. I didnt know what to do, to be honest. They were telling me put the flag here, but the flag is huge, so as soon as I moved it, it was covering someones face, and last night didnt go so well.Asked how the princess reacted, Murray quipped, I think she said, Make sure you dont poke my eye out. Something along those lines. I hope she was OK. I didnt mean to do that. I was just following directions.Murray was chosen ahead of such favorites as boxer Nicola Adams and rower Katherine Grainger.Its fully deserved, and its great for British tennis as well to have someone like him representing all of the athletes [on Friday], said teammate Johanna Konta.Murrays first appearance on the tennis court will be Sunday, when he will play both singles and doubles with younger brother Jamie. Ranked No. 2 in the world, Andy Murray said he will be ready after Friday nights festivities, which he said will be inspiring.With stars such as Roger Federer and Stan Wawrinka opting out of Rio because of injuries, Murray and world No. 1 Novak Djokovic are the favorites to win gold.Roger and Stan, if they were both here, everyone who has won a Grand Slam in the last 10 years or so would be playing here, Murray said. So thats unfortunate they both got injured, and some people obviously had different concerns about coming here.Maybe everyone thinks differently. For me, the Olympics is the biggest sporting event by far, and Im proud to be here to represent my country.
