Lowe went 2-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI overall in a win over the Dodgers in Game 2 of the World Series on Wednesday. Lowe hit a solo homer in the first inning off Tony Gonsolin to open the scoring on the night, and he went on to smash a two-run blast in the fifth inning off Dustin May as well. Lowe's heroics Wednesday night helped the Rays even the series at one apiece, and his first inning run moved Tampa Bay to an MLB-best 32-7 when scoring first this season and postseason.
Lowe went 1-for-5 with a solo homer in the Rays' Game 5 loss to the Astros on Thursday. Tampa Bay's home-run leader during the regular season, Lowe had gone 41 at-bats without an extra-base hit to begin the playoffs. Lowe is finally off the schneid, though it's not out of the question he sits in favor of Mike Brosseau on Friday with lefty Framber Valdez starting for Houston.
Lowe isn't in the lineup Wednesday for Game 4 of the ALCS against the Astros. Lowe has been in a bit of a slump to begin the series, as he's gone 1-for-13 with one run, one walk and five strikeouts.

Lowe is not starting Friday against the Phillies, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports. Lowe sits for the first time in the month of September. This appears to be nothing more than a routine day off, as he's hitting .340/.410/.604 over his last 15 contests. Joey Wendle will be the second baseman in his absence.
