Tampa Bay Rays third baseman Evan Longoria hit his 216th career double in Sunday's game against the Minnesota Twins. According to Roger Mooney of The Tampa Tribune, that allowed him to pass current Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford for the most two-baggers in franchise history.
Already the Rays' all-time leader in home runs (173), Longoria also matched Crawford atop the franchise RBI leaderboard, knocking in the 592nd run of his career.
Having spent all seven of his MLB seasons in Tampa Bay, Longoria has a strong case for the title of greatest player in franchise history.
Crawford's prime largely coincided with the miserable early years of the Rays' existence, whereas Longoria's rookie season in 2008 marked the beginning of a new era.
