Josh Hamilton Named ALCS MVP Following Game 6 Win

After Neftali Feliz put the finishing touches on a 6-1 Rangers win over the Yankees in Game 6 of the ALCS, it wasn't long before the MLB officials started coming out to distribute the usual hardware. Perhaps the most notable piece of the bunch? The ALCS Most Valuable Player award, which was given to Josh Hamilton for his extraordinary efforts against New York.

Friday night, Hamilton reached base four times - once on a single, and thrice on intentional walks. For the series, he collected seven hits in 20 at bats, drilling four home runs and drawing eight walks for good measure. Additionally, he led the Rangers with seven runs batted in, edging out Nelson Cruz's five.

It's not the award Hamilton wants, but he'll most definitely take it in his and his team's pursuit of the ultimate trophy.
