Rangers top Rays 9-6

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Rookie Justin Smoak homered and had a career-high three hits, Josh Hamilton had a homer and two doubles, and the Texas Rangers rallied from an early four-run deficit for a 9-6 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday night.

Vladimir Guerrero added a three-run double in his return to the lineup after missing two games because of a swollen left eye.

Julio Borbon also had three of Texas' 13 hits against a pitching staff that started the night with a 3.17 ERA, best in the AL.

Ben Zobrist had three hits and Evan Longoria homered for the Rays, who lost for only the seventh time in 28 road games.

Rangers starter C.J. Wilson (4-3) recovered from a four-run second to pick up the win, allowing five runs and six hits in five-plus innings. Wilson struck out five but walked four.
