We have a whole new ballgame at Tropicana Field.

Evan Longoria launched a three-run homer off Clay Buchholz in the bottom of the fifth inning to tie Game 3 at 3-3. He has a habit with this kind of thing in elimination games, now doesn’t he? You can watch video of the homer below.

The big inning was set up after Yunel Escobar reached on an infield single and David DeJesus doubled to the right field gap with one out. Buchholz was able to get Ben Zobrist to pop up for the second out before Longoria delivered with the clutch blast to left field. The Rays had the chance for more after Wil Myers walked and James Loney singled, but Buchholz managed to induce a pop-up from Desmond Jennings to end the threat.

We’re tied at 3-3 as Game 3 moves to the top of the sixth inning. With Buchholz at 97 pitches and Alex Cobb at 94, this game will come down to the bullpens.
