Josh Hamilton rocked a two run homer in the eighth inning to propel the Texas Rangers past the Minnesota twins 4-3. All eyes were on Rangers closer Joe Nathan as he came in for the save against his former team. Nathan pitched one inning, tossing only 9 pitches without giving up a hit, and getting the save.

Hamilton has been the Rangers spark plug most of the season. Ron Washington, Rangers manager, told the Associated press that, “He’s locked in. He’s doing everything. He’s using all the fields. He’s not missing mistakes. He’s playing tremendous defense. We certainly needed that big hit he gave us today, and that’s what he’s been doing for us.” Hamilton is currently leading the American League with 16 hits, while batting .390. Mike Napoli also homered in the game.

The Rangers came roaring out of the gate early this season, and hopefully it is something they can maintain over the course of the season.
