Hamilton Hits Four Home Runs

Josh Hamilton had quite a game as the Texas Rangers defeated the Baltimore Orioles 10–3 Tuesday night. Hamilton hit four two-run homers, marking just the 16th four-home-run-game in major-league history. He's the first player to achieve such a feat since September 2003, when Carlos Delgado did so as a Toronto Blue Jay. Of the 16 players to hit four home runs in a game, two did it before 1900. Hamilton has had five multihomer games, but this was his first four-homer game; his eight RBIs were also a career high. Hamilton, the 2010 American League MVP, also had 18 total bases in the game, which broke the Rangers' record set by Jose Canseco in June 1994.
