Josh Hamilton capped a four-hit night with his 16th home run, Michael Young hit a two-run single to break Texas' all-time hits record, and the Rangers overcame an early injury to starter Tommy Hunter to beat the Florida Marlins 6-3 on Wednesday night.
Ian Kinsler scored two unearned runs for the AL West-leading
Rangers, now 11-4 in June. Young finished with two hits, as did
Julio Borbon, including his first homer in 263 at-bats.
Hamilton homered off Renyel Pinto to straightaway center in the
ninth, well past the 404-foot sign for his 48th RBI of the year.
Chris Coghlan had an RBI double and Hanley Ramirez drove in his
seventh run in the past seven games for the Marlins, who have
dropped seven of their past 10.
