Josh Smith clubbed a two-run homer in the ninth inning on Tuesday night as the Rangers fell to the Athletics. The 26-year-old infielder didn’t even enter the game until Corey Seager departed with a forearm contusion in the fifth inning. He made the most of his time, tagging Kolton Ingram for a 374-foot two-run shot in the ninth inning that pulled the Rangers to within six runs at 9-3. Smith finished the night 1-for-2 and is now hitting .187/.307/.332 with six dingers and 15 RBI in 229 plate appearances with the Rangers on the season.
