News: Lowe took the loss Tuesday against the Yankees, surrendering two hits and three runs (two earned) in 0.1 innings.
Impact: Lowe gave up a three-run homer to Greg Bird that broke a 3-3 tie, only the third round-tripper the reliever has surrendered in 53.1 innings this season. The runs were also the first yielded by the veteran since an Aug. 26 outing against the Royals. Despite the forgettable outcome on Tuesday, Lowe has pitched impressively in relief for the Blue Jays this season, posting a 1.86 ERA, securing 15 holds and amassing an impressive 28.2 percent strikeout rate.

News: Lowe snagged the win, pitching 0.1 innings in Tuesday's extra-inning victory over the Indians.
Impact: After Brett Cecil made things interesting in the 10th inning, Lowe needed just two pitches to get Jerry Sands to ground out to move the game to the bottom of the 10th. While Lowe hasn't been nearly the same pitcher in Toronto as he was in Seattle, he still holds a 1.80 ERA on the season and is trusted in higher leverage situations.
