Brandon Lowe hits another home run in Game 2 of the World Series

Second baseman Brandon Lowe swings at a pitch during the Terps' 2-1 loss against Iowa at Bob "Turtle" Smith Stadium on April 12, 2015.

After enduring a horrific slump throughout the entire postseason, former Maryland Terrapin and current Tampa Bay Ray Brandon Lowe hit his second home run of Game 2 of the World Series on Wednesday night against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Lowe’s two-run home run in the 5th inning against Dodgers RHP Dustin May gave the Rays a 5-0 lead in a must-win game.

He also homered in the first inning off Dodgers starter Tony Gonsolin to give the Rays a 1-0 lead.

While his first home run cleared the left-center field wall by plenty, Lowe’s second home run of the night was a literal wall scraper as the ball hit the top of the wall in left field before bouncing into the seats. The former Terp’s 5th inning home run traveled an estimated 381 feet and left his bat at 104 MPH.

Lowe is the first former Maryland Terrapin to hit two home runs in a World Series game and will look to become the first player to hit three home runs in a World Series game since Pablo Sandoval in 2012.
