Monday, 4 a.m.

It wasn’t just that Brandon Lowe was hurt. There for a while, it seemed as if he were invisible.

Go back a week. Lowe was finally healthy, but he was struggling. He was hitting .205, and his power seemed to have disappeared.

Ah, but Lowe is a streaky player, and finally, his time has come again.

Josh Lowe had a three-run double./TIM WIRT

Over the last five games, Lowe has hit .474. He has his overall average up to .226, and he’s homered three times in the last five games.

His latest burst of offense came Sunday afternoon in an 8-2 victory over the Houston Astros. Lowe had three hits and three RBI, including a two-run homer, to lead the Rays to their only series win of July.

The Rays scored their second-most runs of the month to support starter Zach Littell, who won his first game. Littell threw five innings and allowed just two earned runs.

Reliever Erasmo Ramirez threw three innings of shutout baseball.

Yandy Diaz, Harold Ramirez and Josh Lowe all had two hits for the Rays. Josh Lowe had a three-run double in the first to get the Rays started.

The Rays now move to New York to play the Yankees 7:05 p.m. tonight. Tyler Glasnow will start for the Rays against Domingo German.
