What's another word for Thesaurus? Josh Hamilton powers Rangers past Boston's Steven Wright for first home win since May 17

On a night when Hanser Alberto made his Major League debut and collected his first hit, first triple, first RBI, and first run scored, the story was, as always, about Josh Hamilton. Hambone went deep twice in his first two at-bats against Boston knuckler Steven Wright to put the Rangers up by a run each time. A week ago, the Rangers won seven straight games away from Arlington. Tonight, with the win, the Rangers finally won their seventh game overall at home.

Player of the Game: Josh Hamilton hit two home runs in the first four innings of this game. On the season, the Angels have gotten three total home runs from their left fielders. Thanks, Arte. Hope that $75 million dollars of petulance is paying off for you.
