Jonah Heim also homered and Kole Calhoun drove in three runs for Texas. Rays starter Drew Rasmussen walked the first three batters he faced and gave up five runs in three innings. Josh Smith had three hits in his big league debut for Texas. He singled in his first big league at-bat before White’s homer for a 4-1 lead.
