Tampa Bay Rays' Kevin Kiermaier to miss two months with hip fracture

Fans watch game action during the first game of a doubleheader between the Oakland Athletics and Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg on Saturday

The split-second decision to get down to avoid a potentially large collision with Abreu will now cost Kiermaier and the Rays.

The right-hander lasted one inning before suffering a recurrence of the same injury that he just returned from.

Liam Hendriks (2-1, 3.38 ERA) takes the loss for the A's who fall to 26-36 on the year and a Major League Baseball worst 8-22 on the road. Rays manager Kevin Cash said. "Sweeping a doubleheader in this league is really hard to do".

The Rays' fourth straight win came in the opener of the majors' first regularly scheduled doubleheader since 2011.

St. Louis designated infielder Jhonny Peralta for assignment, activated second baseman Kolten Wong and reassigned of third-base coach Chris Maloney to a to-be-determined position within the organization.

When asked what it was like watching the Rays' offensive onslaught, a joking Cobb said "Score em' a little quicker, so I can get back out there". It was Longoria's eighth career walk-off hit.




Archer (4-4, 3.65) is coming off an 11-strikeout performance against the White Sox - his 23rd double-digit strikeout game of his career. Rays' Peter Bourjos scored. He's never been a dominant offensive player-his career-high OPS is.765, and that came during his rookie season in in 2014-but he's an elite defender and is the two-time reigning AL Gold Glove victor in center field. With 32 hits as a team, the A's set an Oakland record for most hits in a doubleheader.

A's manager Bob Melvin in particular liked the way his second-year starter navigated his way through traffic in the seventh inning, with his pitch count approaching 100.

Over those past five outings, the lefty is 5-0 with a 1.97 ERA and a.193 opponents' batting average. He worked 5 1/3 innings allowing three runs, all earned, on ten hits, while striking out six and walking one.

Nearly as big for the A's as Manaea's performance was Oakland being able to see left-handed reliever Sean Doolittle pitch in a big league game for the first time since April 29.Out with a left shoulder strain that cost him 36 games, the veteran pitched the eighth inning and made rather uneventful work of the 2-3-4 spots in the Rays' batting order.

The slugger went on the DL on April 28 with a strained left hamstring and then took a break of almost two weeks after he had tightness in his right quadriceps.
