VIDEO: Josh Hamilton Mashes 4 Home Runs

Tuesday night in Baltimore, Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton batted five times and came away with four homers and a double. That's one of them productive games, and for your convenience we have video of his feat. Or video of his four feats. (Nobody cares about the double.) (Stupid worthless double.)


In the first inning, Hamilton blasted a first-pitch outside curveball to center field.

In the third inning, Hamilton blasted a 2-and-0 outside fastball to left field.

In the seventh inning, Hamilton blasted an 0-and-1 outside slider to center field.

In the eighth inning, Hamilton blasted an 0-and-2 outside sinker to center field.

Hamilton did a pretty good job of covering the outer half of the plate Tuesday night, I would say. Hamilton attempted nine swings in all in the game. He turned those nine swings into 18 total bases, or two total bases per swing. With the effort, Hamilton raised his season slugging percentage from .703 to .840. Matt Kemp's season slugging percentage is sitting at .832. Did Josh Hamilton just serve Matt Kemp? Is that how this works?
