Hamilton hits 100th career HR in 8-1 victory

Maybe it's because I'm tired (going on four hours sleep) or maybe it's because Elvis Andrus hurt his wrist stealing his 22nd base of the season tonight.  Whatever it is, I should be way more excited about tonight's win.  Seriously.  What wasn't there to like?

:: Three two-run home runs --- Adrian Beltre, Michael Young and Josh Hamilton.

:: Hits for almost everyone in the Rangers' lineup.

:: A shiny seven-inning effort from Matt Harrison --- one run allowed on seven hits and a walk.

:: Two scoreless innings from the bullpen --- Darren Oliver and Mark Lowe.

:: An 8-1 victory.

It was a great, clean win.  I should be more ecstatic, but I'm feeling kind of meh.  I'm going to blame the lack of sleep, although Elvis' injury definitely dampens things a bit.  Hopefully it's minor and won't keep him off the field long.

And because I'm tired, I'm going to keep this entry short and sweet.  My apologies.


KISS:  I'll go with Josh Hamilton.  He drove in three runs tonight on two hits, including a home run, which was the 100th of his career.  It's hard to believe he's at 100 already.  He made his major league debut in Cincinnati in 2007.  He hit 19 home runs in a Reds uniform, but the other 81 have been in Rangers red and blue.  Much love.

MISS:  Mitch Moreland is the only starter who did not get on base, but ... eh.



Mets :: 1 R, 8 H, 1 E, 7 TLOB

Rangers :: 8 R, 13 H, 10 TLOB
