Rangers Vs. Orioles: Josh Hamilton Has Chance At History In Eighth

With an 8-1 lead in Baltimore, the Rangers have a fairly safe lead (their win probability sits at), but there is still a good reason to switch over to the game if you're not watching already: potential history.

Three times tonight, Elvis Andrus has reached, and all three times Josh Hamilton has brought his teammate -- and himself -- home with a blast. Once to left, once to right, and once to center.

With the seventh just ended, Hamilton is due up third in the top of the eighth, and a home run would make him the 16th player in Major League history to hit four in one game. No one has accomplished the feet since Carlos Delgado in 2003.

Apparently the sign tonight for "Josh is going deep" is Elvis Andrus reaching base, so keep an eye out for that.
