HAMILTON CAME BACK; HIT TRIPLE AND RANGERS BEAT PADRES
Fri, 22 Jun 2012 03:29 AM EDT

It did not take long to see the impact Josh Hamilton has on the Rangers.

After missing 4 starts with a sickness, Hamilton returned in a big way Tuesday night with a 2-run triple to lift the Texas Rangers to a 7-3 superiority over the Padres. Basketball odds

Hamilton, who leads the major leagues with 66 RBIs, went 2 for 5 and scored 2 runs as the Texas Rangers extended their winning streak to 5 games.

“I knew I was going to be tired,” Hamilton said. “After I spent time on the bases, I was literally spent the remainder of the game. But it will be better.”

After Hamilton tripled in the 3rd and scored on Adrian Beltre’s sacrifice fly, he revealed, “It took me about 3 innings to catch my breath.”

Hamilton hadn’t started a game since last Thursday due to an abdominal pathogen that made him lose 10 pounds as he was briefly hospitalized.

But in spite of being at “about 80 to 85 percent, Hamilton set the scene for the remainder of his teammates, who were coming off a 2-1 win over the Padres on Monday night where they were held to 5 hits.

“From that point on, swinging the bat got contagious,” Texas manager Ron Washington asserted.

Nelson Cruz and Beltre both drove in 2 runs as the Rangers finished with 12 hits to win for the 8th time in 9 games.

“It makes a significant difference having him in the middle of our lineup,” Texas 2nd baseman Ian Kinsler said. “He helps make us go, and you saw that.”

Scott Feldman (1-6) broke a 6-start losing streak to avoid becoming the Rangers’ 1st pitcher to lose his 1st 7 choices in 30 years.

Feldman, who had his 1st career RBI, pitched 6 innings and authorized 2 runs and 7 hits. The right-hander didn’t walk a batter and struck out 5, including Carlos Quentin 3 times.

“He’s been fighting to go out there and have an interesting game and he finally did it,” Washington said.

Hamilton made his presence felt in the 3rd inning when he tripled in 2 runs off Edinson Volquez (3-7) and scored on the sacrifice fly as Texas took a 3-1 lead.

“We have seen it in spring training,” Padres executive Bud Black asserted about Hamilton. “To see it live in a regular season game, he’s an impressive player. He’s truly a 5-tool player.”

Hamilton faced Volquez for the 1st time since they were the principals in a 2007 trade that sent Hamilton from Cincinnati to Texas.

Volquez did not get an out in the 6th inning as he allowed 6 runs and 5 hits with 6 strikeouts and 4 walks.

Kinsler singled with one out in the 3rd and Elvis Andrus walked before Hamilton hit a ball into the right-center field gap to put the Rangers ahead 2-0. It was Hamilton’s 1st triple of the season.

“It was great because I didn’t try and do too much with (my swing),” Hamilton said.
