(BALTIMORE) — Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton hit four two-run-home-runs, becoming the 16th player in Major League Baseball history to do so, as the Rangers beat the Orioles 10-3.
“It’s an absolute blessing,” Hamilton said. “After I hit two and knowing I never hit three in a game, and then to hit four, I was just thanking God above for giving me the opportunity obviously to be back in the game. After everything I’ve gone through to be in a position like that, it was awesome.”
Hamilton becomes the first player since Carlos Delgado did it in 2003 for the Blue Jays.
Hamilton ended the night going 5 for 5, with the four home-runs and a double. He now leads baseball with a .406 average, 14 homers and 36 RBIs.
