BALTIMORE -- Walking out of Camden Yards, Rangers catcher Mike Napoli still couldn't believe what he had just seen.
"It was like a video game stupid," Napoli said. "He's 5A, 6A. There's Triple A, the big leagues and then there's one ahead. He's in that league."
The Josh Hamilton League.
A league in which Hamilton made the 16th four-homer game in major league history look so easy, the only surprise was that he didn't hit five.
The one time the left-handed Hamilton failed to hit a homer in his third at-bat he crushed a double to right-center off Orioles right-hander Jake Arrieta.
"He just missed that one," Rangers left fielder David Murphy said after Texas' 10-3 victory Tuesday. "He put topspin on that ball. That easily could have been a home run."
Five home runs, imagine.
Hamilton settled for four two-run shots instead.
This was not a night to lament what Hamilton might have become if he had not lost years of his career to injuries, addictions and suspensions.
Nor was it ...
