VIDEO: Josh Hamilton Hits Four Home Runs (And Almost A Fifth) In One Game

Josh Hamilton fired more shots on the city of Baltimore than the entire cast of "The Wire" on Tuesday night, hitting four home runs in the Texas Rangers's 10-3 rout of the Orioles. Courtesy of MLB.com, here's video of all four dingers, back-to-back-to-back-to...back:

That's not all, though - Hamilton came very close to bashing a fifth home run (click the link to see a meager infield hit just feet short of the right field wall at Camden Yards)

Not surprisingly, the feat was a first in the Rangers' history, dating back to 1972. Hamilton became the 16th player in MLB history and the first since Carlos Delgado did it for the Blue Jays in 2003. With 18 total bases on the night, Hamilton also set a single game record for an AL batter, and was only one off of the all-time MLB record of 19 by Shawn Green of the Brewers in 2002.
