I'm sure these kinds of totally tubular stats will be pouring in from all directions over the next 24 hours or so, but this one is my personal favorite so far:â†µ
Hamilton entered the night with a .474 wOBA and raised it to .536, passing Matt Kemp for the best mark in baseball. For the evening, he posted a wRC+ of 1,212. His wRC+ for the year is now 247 – Babe Ruth’s highest single season wRC+ was .235.â†µ
For the reference, the highest wOBA ever posted in Ranger history was the .447 Hamilton put forth two years ago.â†µ
Another one of my favorites is this: In one night, Josh Hamilton had one fewer RBI and four times as many homeruns as Albert Pujols has had all season.
