Nate Lowe was at it again Tuesday night.

During the Rangers’ game against the Toronto Blue Jays at Globe Life Field, Lowe hit two home runs for four total RBIs.

The four RBIs helped Lowe set a new club record for the most ever by a Ranger through the first five games of the season. He has 14 RBIs so far on the year.

And he’s only had 20 at-bats this season.

The 25-year-old first baseman joined the Rangers this offseason after two seasons with the Tampa Bay Rays. He’s on pace to far surpass his career-high of 19 RBIs in a season, which he set during his rookie year in 2019. It took him 152 at-bats to reach that mark.

Currently, Lowe is leading the league in RBIs.
