Rays' Mallex Smith: Collects four hits against Rangers
Smith went 4-for-4 with a double and a run in Tampa Bay's 8-4 victory over Texas on Monday.
The four-hit game continued a hot start for Smith, who is now hitting .409 through 44 at-bats with a 1.044 OPS. He doesn't have any home runs and only has three RBI over that stretch. That said, with Kevin Kiermaier out with a thumb injury, Smith figures to lead off, at least against righties, which could allow him to be rock solid contributor in steals, runs and batting average going forward.
