Semien belted a two-run shot to left-center field off Rays southpaw Ryan Yarbrough in the third inning. It was his lone hit in three at-bats. The 30-year-old All-Star second baseman owns a sublime .279/.346/.533 triple-slash line with 67 runs scored, 22 homers, 56 RBI and 10 stolen bases across 390 plate appearances.

Brandon Lowe clobbered a pair of home runs on Saturday, leading the Rays to a 5-3 victory over the Blue Jays in their penultimate game before the All-Star break. Lowe tagged Blue Jays righty Ross Stripling for a pair of round-trippers, crushing a solo shot in the second inning and also adding a two-run blast in the third inning. It was his second multi-homer performance of the 2021 campaign. The 27-year-old second baseman has been locked-in at the dish lately, going deep seven times over his last eight games.
