Lowrie went 2-for-3 with a walk in a loss to the Mariners on Wednesday. The veteran was the lone bright spot for the Athletics offense on a night when they were completely stymied for all nine innings. Lowrie has cooled off some in May after a torrid start to the season, but Wednesday's two-hit effort represented his seventh multi-hit tally of the month. Moreover, all three components of his .319/.389/.537 line are career highs, while his .218 ISO is his best figure in that category since 2010.
Lowrie is not in the lineup against Toronto on Saturday. Lowrie will head to the bench for a standard day off following 11 straight starts. During Friday's win, he went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles. Chad Pinder will make a start at second base in his absence.
Lowrie went 1-for-4 with an RBI double, two walks and two runs in a win over the Blue Jays on Thursday. The hot-hitting veteran erased an early 1-0 deficit with a third-inning two-bagger that plated Matt Joyce, and he then crossed the plate himself with the go-ahead run on Khris Davis' home run. Lowrie has only slightly fallen off the torrid pace he set in April, a month in which he slashed a stellar .343/.402/.618. The 34-year-old has five multi-hit efforts thus far in May, and all three components of his current .324/.389/.549 line represent career bests.
Lowrie went 3-for-6 with a home run and two RBI in Friday's 10-5 win over the Yankees. The veteran second baseman broke out of what has passed for a slump for him in 2018 -- a 2-for-13 stretch in his prior four games -- with his 16th multi-hit performance in 37 games. Lowrie now boasts a .344/.404/.596 slash line with nine homers and 34 RBI, and while he will eventually cool down, his run production should remain solid as long as he continues hitting third for the A's.
Lowrie went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in a loss to the Astros on Wednesday. Lowrie's sixth-inning two-bagger plated Matt Joyce, snapping a scoreless tie. It ultimately served as the only run of the night for the Athletics, who were done in by another stellar Gerrit Cole effort. Lowrie shows no signs of tapering off from a scorching hot start to his season, as he's hitting .333 with a double, two home runs, five RBI, four walks and three runs over his first eight games of May.
