Rangers inside-the-park

Texas’ Josh Smith slides safely into home plate for an inside-the-park home run during the sixth inning of a game against Oakland on Monday.

ARLINGTON (AP) — Corey Seager’s first four-game homer streak comes with the realization that the slugging Texas shortstop might never match what diminutive teammate Josh Smith did an inning later.

Seager connected on his 20th homer leading off the fifth before the rookie Smith got his first home run in the big leagues on an inside-the-park shot as the Rangers held on to beat the Oakland Athletics 10-8 Monday night.
