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
