Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton, who has been red hot since the start of the season, became the first player since 2003 to hit four home runs in a game when he turned the trick against the Orioles in Baltimore on Tuesday night. All four of Hamilton's homers in the Rangers' 10-3 victory were two-run shots, and he became the 14th player since 1900 to have a four-homer game. Hamilton is the first to accomplish the feat since Carlos Delgado did it in 2003. Hamilton also had a double, and his 18 total bases in the game broke the American League record and is one shy of the major-league record. Orioles starter Jake Arrieta allowed two of Hamilton's homers, Zach Phillips gave up the third, and Darren O'Day gave up the fourth, an eighth-inning blast to dead center. Hamilton is hitting .406 with an AL-leading 14 homers and 36 RBIs.
