Did Mallex Smith Get Some Vibe From Teddy Ballgame?

Smith Clouts A Double Off Buchholz
Just before Atlanta's Mallex Smith roped the first of his three hits in last night's game, Red Sox broadcaster Dave O'Brien told an interesting tale about the young speedster. After noting that Smith was the Braves' top minor league player of 2015, O'Brien noted that the youngster made a point to sit in the famous Ted Williams Red Seat in the Fenway bleachers. While it cannot be confirmed that Smith derived some "mojo" from the encounter, here is his line from Thursday's game: 3-for-4 with two doubles, two RBIs and a run scored . Even with this outburst, he's still only hitting .188 on the year. You decide.
