Jed Lowrie 2B/SS.. OAK 2 Days
Jed Lowrie went 3-for-5 with a walk, two doubles, an RBI, and a run scored in a win over the Angels on Tuesday night.
Lowrie had collected only two hits over his last six starts, sandwiched around Sunday's maintenance day off, so it was nice to see him put a charge into the ball a few times. Despite the lack of hits, he's still been doing damage by drawing 14 walks, good for second in the AL. He's never been a great contact hitter, but that .244 average will rise a bit as pitchers realize that Lowrie is perfectly content to allow them to beat themselves.
