Rangers Hamilton swings into history with four home runs

BALTIMORE -- Josh Hamilton swung at an 0-2 pitch from a tough sinkerball pitcher, crushing it deep to center through the humid Chesapeake air, over the center-field wall and into Major League history.

As he ran around second base on his fourth home run trot of the night, Hamilton saw what was going on in the Rangers' dugout. It made him smile.

"Just seeing how excited my teammates were, then touching home plate and going into the dugout, the reaction from them was the best part," Hamilton said afterwards. "Getting hugs ... those are the guys you go out and battle with every day. It doesn't always work out, but we give it everything we got."

I saw it and it was amazing. A perfect night for Hamilton and for the Texas Rangers.

Hamilton is the 16th player in Major League history to hit four home runs and is the seventh player to hit five extra-base hits. The 18 total bases were a new American League record. He is now hitting .406 with 14 home runs and 36 RBIs on the season.
