    Hamilton just hit his 4th homer of the game. This has only happened 14 times in major league history. He has 8 RBI tonight. Last one went past 410.

    Hamilton is going to go out and celebrate with a drink or two after the game.

    Their bats have been on fire lately. Only thing to worry about is them "peaking" too early in the season.

    Also, remember Hamilton had issues with the sun being too bright or some such nonsense last year? He'll miss at least 20 - 30 games guaranteed.
