Brandon Lowe hits home run in Game 2 of World Series

Second baseman Brandon Lowe hits the ball during the Terps' game against Navy in April 2014.

Brandon Lowe, the former Maryland Terrapin and current second baseman of the Tampa Bay Rays, homered in the first inning of Game 2 of the World Series on Wednesday night against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The 2015 3rd-round draft pick ambushed a fastball from Dodgers starter Tony Gonsolin and sent the ball over the wall in left-center field at Globe Life Field to give the Rays a 1-0 lead. Lowe’s home run ultimately went 410 feet with an exit velocity of 106 MPH.


Lowe has been mired in a slump throughout the postseason as he entered Game 2 hitting just .133 in the postseason. This go-ahead bomb might help rejuvenate what had been a fantastic 2020 for the all-star. 

With his first-inning home run, he became the first former Maryland Terrapin to hit a home run in the World Series since 1942.
