Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Smacks fifth homer in Thursday win

Lowrie went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's 8-3 win over the Red Sox.

The veteran infielder touched up his old team for a 418-foot two-run shot in the first that evened the score at 2-2, his fifth round-tripper of the campaign. The homer was Lowrie's first since he'd blasted a pair on May 8, and also snapped a 2-for-25 slump that had encompassed his previous five games. Despite his recent struggles, Lowrie is still slashing a solid .268/.345/.436 and has blown by the two homers it took him 369 plate appearances to compile last season.
