LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Tampa Bay Rays have pulled off the old hidden ball trick, trapping Juan Uribe of the Dodgers at third base.

The rarely seen play occurred in the fourth inning Saturday with Los Angeles leading 4-0.

A.J. Ellis hit a bases-loaded sacrifice fly, and all three runners moved up as center fielder Wil Myers threw toward the plate.

First baseman James Loney wound up with the ball behind the mound. He flipped it to shortstop Yunel Escobar, who then quickly tossed the ball to Longoria while no one seemed to be looking.

Longoria stood behind Uribe, who was chatting with third base coach Tim Wallach. When Uribe took his foot off the bag, Longoria tagged him.

Umpire Angel Hernandez was right on the play, watching the whole time, and made the out call.
