(Home run at 2:07)
As the bottom of the 13 inning soon approached during a game in which the Rangers could not find a way to convert when they put men on base (13 left on base), it didn’t seem plausible that they had the ability to come back from the 7-5 hole they had dug themselves in. Hamilton had other plans.
Josh Hamilton hit his league-leading 20th home run of the year Saturday in walk-off fashion to give the Texas Rangers an 8-7 victory against the pesky Toronto Blue Jays. Even though there was a total of 408 pitches thrown on the day, because of Hamilton’s walk-off home run, the man that tallied only five pitches (Jason Frasor) picked up the loss.
Hambone provided his team with a much needed win as they finally won back-to-back games for the first time since May 11. They now will go for the series sweep Sunday afternoon as Yu Darvish (6-2) will look to pass eight other six-win pitchers to take the AL lead in wins.
