Jed Lowrie drew two walks and drove in three runs Monday in the Athletics' defeat of the Tigers.

Lowrie set the tone for the night with an RBI double in the top of the first inning -- the 46th double of the season for the 33-year-old second baseman. He then added a run-scoring sac fly in the top of the third and drew a bases-loaded walk in the top of the fourth. Lowrie has been scorching hot in September and now holds an .808 OPS for the year.

Jed Lowrie went 3-for-4 with two walks and three runs scored Monday against the Angels.

Lowrie reached five times, but he wasn't able to add to his total of 41 doubles on the year. He's really picked it up in the walk department since the All-Star break, posting a 23/27 K/BB ratio in 191 plate appearances. During the first half, he was at 64/32 K/BB in 358 PA.

The veteran second baseman is having his best season at the plate since 2013 and he may end up beating that one too. He is now slashing .270/.344/.443 with 12 home runs, 48 RBI and 67 runs scored in 123 games.

Jed Lowrie launched a two-run home run Tuesday in Baltimore.

Boog Powell led off the game with a single and Lowrie followed that with a bomb off Ubaldo Jimenez that hit the top of the fence and went into the seats. It was his lone hit in five trips to the plate, but the veteran infielder has now gone deep in each of the first two games of the series.

Aug 11 - 1:23 AM

Jed Lowrie went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Indians.

With the A's already leading 4-0 in the third inning, Lowrie padded out the score with a solo home run. The dinger was his 10th of the season. Prior to that long ball, Lawrie had not exactly been tearing up the stat sheet -- he entered Sunday's contest in a little 0-for-11 skid dating back to before the All-Star break. For the campaign as a whole, the second baseman is hitting .278/.345/.465 with 10 homers, 27 doubles and 33 RBI across 334 at-bats. He is a potential trade candidate at the deadline, with ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reporting earlier on Sunday that the Red Sox have kicked the tires on infielder.
Jul 16 - 7:23 PM

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Red Sox have scouted Jed Lowrie.

The Red Sox have been heavily connected to Todd Frazier, but Crasnick says they're monitoring multiple options as they look to upgrade at third base. Lowrie, whose career began in Boston, has hit .273/.340/.448 with nine homers this season. He's only played second base this season but has plenty of experience at third.

Jed Lowrie could get his ailing right knee checked out by a doctor in Houston on Monday.

Lowrie tweaked his knee while trying to avoid an inside pitch on Friday and has now sat out two straight games. It doesn't at this point seem like more than a day-to-day ailment, but it sounds like more will be known Monday. Franklin Barreto is at second base again Sunday.
Jun 25 - 12:56 PM

Jed Lowrie finished 1-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Monday's loss against the Astros.

Lowrie accounted for all of the offense, as Brad Peacock was hard on the Athletics. In fact, Lowrie was the only starter in the Oakland lineup who did not strike out at least once.
Jun 20 - 1:37 AM

Jed Lowrie is not in the Athletics' lineup for Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rays.
