No 'Josh'-Ing—Sox Are Powered Over By Texas

Talk about your bad timing. Josh Hamilton and the Rangers decided to make his homecoming coincide with a visit by the Red Sox. Last night, Hamilton hit two bombs off knuckle-baller Steven Wright—propelling Texas to a 7-4 win. The first broke a 2-2 tie, the second came on a 66 MPH offering from Wright. Having said that, Wright only gave up three runs—it was the bullpen that handed Texas this win. Hanley Ramirez continued his 'Reinvention Tour', with a 2-4 night—including his 12th HR. But it just wasn't enough to overcome the Ranger Prodigal Son and his ability to use lightening bat speed to crush baseballs.
