Breaking: Josh Hamilton homers 4 times against Orioles
Texas center fielder Josh Hamilton just hit his 11th, 12th, 13th, and 14th home runs tonight, becoming the first player to slug four home runs in a game since Carlos Delgado in 2003.
He also doubled to set the American League record with 18 total bases, and drove in 8 of the Rangers’ 10 runs.
A little while ago on DC, we discussed Hamilton’s potential contract after this season. Hamilton’s big night has currently put him over the .400 mark, with his OPS sitting just shy of 1.300. He won’t do it, but continuing at his current pace (warped largely by tonight’s huge game) would give him all-time single season records in both home runs and RBI.
Safe to say, he’s been helping his stock.
