No Longo

Evan Longoria was scratched from the lineup and sent home with a stomach virus that's been going around the Rays clubhouse.

Morgan Ensberg is at third in place of Longoria.

No word yet on whether Longo will leave the Rays and join Team USA for the semifinal round of the WBC. Chipper Jones is hurt and Team USA needs another third baseman. Longo said he would go if asked.

Jason Hammel, who figures to be the Rays fifth starter, walked a batter and allowed a hit in the top of the first that led to a Reds run.

The Reds lead 1-0 as we head to the bottom of the first.
