Josh Hamilton‘s home run drought is finally over. And yes, I write that with tongue firmly planted in cheek.
After Aaron mentioned this morning that Hamilton hadn’t homered in nearly two weeks, the Rangers’ slugger went deep in the bottom of the second inning tonight against the Blue Jays. His solo shot off right-hander Carlos Villanueva landed in the second deck in right field.
It was Hamilton’s first home run since May 12, spanning 11 games and 47 plate appearances. Even with the two-week gap between round-trippers, Hamilton still leads the majors by a wide margin with 19 home runs. After hitting another home run tonight, Adam Dunn currently ranks second in the majors with 15.
