James Loney went 2- for-4  and homered for the second day in a row to help the Tampa Bay Rays beat the San Diego Padres 4-2  and complete a three-game sweep. Loney is now hitting 376/.429/.560 with three home runs and 20 RBI in 37 games. Loney, 29, is a .285/.342/.423 career hitter in the majors. Tampa Bay has now won five games in a row and seven out of their last 10. The Rays  will be off on Monday and start a three-game series with the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday. Loney is hitting .526 against left-handers and .337  against right-handers  and has settled in nicely on most days in the lineup behind Evan Longoria. Fantasy Note:  To expect Loney to continue this kind of htting is a bit unrealistic,  but today I couldn’t take it anymore and picked him up.  Held by only 22% of ESPN fantasy league owners Loney is very much available  and to have  a regular player hitting .376 on the waiver wire just isn’t right.
