Full story link now available (as of 11:15 ET) -- if you see more stories to link to, add them in the comments please. As I posted this, I had just sprinted into my home office from the TV after seeing Josh Hamilton homer for the fourth time today agains the Orioles (he also doubled -- the 18 TB in one game are an AL record).
The Rangers won big, 10-3, so the O's fans gave Josh an immediate ovation. If you're gonna get trouncecd, at least watch history. And it's just the 14th four-dinger game in MLB history since 1900. The fourth one was to dead center, bounced off the top of the wall, up and to the left and just snuck over the fence. Wow. Did I mention, wow? Four-homer games are just about exactly as rare as perfect games -- which would you rather see, Bauxites?
