Smoak went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in the Mariners' win over the A's on Saturday.
The home run gave Smoak 20 for a season, a mark that tops last season's 19. Seventeen of those home runs came after he returned from Triple-A on June 18, but only two of those home runs came against left-handed starting pitchers. Still, the redeemed power should help him lay claim to the Mariners' starting first base job to start camp next spring.
