Boylan alum Smolinski homers twice for A's

Posted:
OAKLAND (WREX) -

Boylan graduate Jake Smolinski helped power a 14-1 Oakland Athletics rout of the Minnesota Twins with two home runs, totaling three hits and four runs batted in for the A's.

It's the first multi-homer game of Smolinski's young MLB career. He was claimed off waviers by the Athletics in June after a stint with the Texas Rangers. Smolinski has seen sporadic playing time in Oakland, playing left field and coming off the bench as a pinch hitter.
