Lawrie now has six multi-hit games in the span of his last eight. The recent surge has pulled his batting average up from .226 to .252. He's already up to 22 doubles and 11 homers, so he should have a good chance to set career-highs in each category if he can stay healthy.

Brett Lawrie hammered a pair of home runs Saturday in a loss to the Blue Jays.

The Pale Hose matched a team record with seven home runs on Saturday, though all of them were solo shots. Lawrie legged an inside-the-parker in the second inning before taking R.A. Dickey deep again in the fourth. He added an RBI single in the sixth for good measure. The 26-year-old is now on pace for 20 home runs, which would best the 16 he belted last season. Unfortunately he's hitting just .241 with 88 strikeouts in 278 at-bats.

Brett Lawrie filled up the box score in the first game of Monday’s doubleheader against the Indians by going 2-for-2 with a three-run homer, two walks, a stolen base, and two runs scored.

His fifth-inning blast against Mike Clevinger was a no-doubter, as it traveled an estimated 417 feet. Lawrie has had a quiet may, but he’s up to six homers, 19 RBI, and three steals through 44 games. With a hitter-friendly stadium as the backdrop, he’s capable of being a useful middle infield option in mixed fantasy leagues.
