The Rangers' No. 3 prospect slugged a pair of homers and drove in three more runs Friday as the Frisco RoughRiders edged the Tulsa Drillers, 4-3.
Olt got the scoring started in the second inning, leading off with a blast over the left-field fence. After No. 1 prospect Jurickson Profar singled in the fourth, Olt took Drillers starter Edwar Cabrera deep to left again to give the RoughRiders a 3-2 lead.
"The first at-bat, I got a fastball up and in," Olt said. "The next at-bat, I just tried to look to the middle of the field and he left a changeup up in the zone."
Olt has been on a torrid pace, homering four times and driving in 13 runs in his last eight games. He's 15-for-33 with nine runs scored during that stretch to raise his average to .304, the highest it's been since the third game of the season.
"I think the key has been the approach and staying with it," Olt said. "Early in the season, I started second-guessing things and doing things I couldn't handle. Now I just trust the approach and stick with it. I just try and stay in the middle of the field and adjust to the corners. I look middle and just adjust."
The 23-year-old third baseman ranks second in the Texas League with 39 RBIs and is tied for third with 13 homers. His .980 OPS places him fourth in the circuit and he's second with 110 total bases in his first time around the league.
"It's been a learning experience," Olt said. "The veteran guys have helped me out with the little things of baseball. A big part of baseball is the mental aspect, and it's a big part of what I'm learning."
Olt's one-out single in the ninth proved to be the catalyst for the RoughRiders. He moved up a base on a groundout and, after Chris McGuiness was intentionally walked, scored the winning run on a single by Ryan Strausborger. The rally came against reliever Coty Woods, who had not allowed a run in his first 23 appearances of the season.
"He's a very good pitcher and there's a reason he hasn't given up a run this season," Olt said. "Think small. You can't try and bury balls in the gap because he doesn't leave balls in the middle of the plate."
Profar, MLB.com's No. 5 overall prospect, extended his on-base streak to 49 games with his single. Overall, the 19-year-old shortstop is batting .293 with 24 RBIs, primarily hitting in front of Olt in the lineup.
"Every time he's up, he's a threat," Olt said. "He'll see a lot of pitches and that helps me see what the pitchers got. And he's a good guy to protect you."
Frisco's Barret Loux failed in bid to win his 11th straight start, allowing three runs -- one earned -- on five hits over six innings.
