Brett Lawrie smacks his 5th home run of the year and celebrates with Kelly Johnson.

Lawrie said he was expecting Livan Hernandez to throw an offspeed pitch and he got a slow 66-mph curveball. “I knew it wasn’t going to be [a fastball],” Lawrie said. “It was going to be offspeed or something to try and get me out front, and I just caught it on a good part of the bat.”
