Brandon Lowe leads way with two homers as Rays beat Jays

Brandon Lowe said he feels better at the plate. Normal, even. But far from anything special, which might be the most extraordinary — and encouraging — thing about what he’s doing.

Lowe hit two more homers Saturday, leading the Rays over the Blue Jays 5-2 for their sixth straight win.

That’s four home runs in the past four games for the previously struggling second baseman/corner outfielder, six in his past eight games, and eight in his past 15. He has a career-high 20 overall and is on a pace for 36 this season.

And he said there is more to come.

“I feel normal,’’ Lowe said. “I don’t think that I’m on a tear or as hot as I can be. But I definitely feel better at the plate.’’

Lowe’s resurrection has been a welcome boost to the Rays, who improved to 53-36 heading into Sunday’s final game before the All-Star break. They moved within 1½ games of the American League East-leading Red Sox, who lost 11-2 to the Phillies.
