VIDEO: Josh Hamilton makes two home run saving catches

  • David Whitlock

The Los Angeles Angels former MVP and 5-time All Star Josh Hamilton may be struggling with the bat, but at least today, he brought his glove to the stadium, saving as many as four runs on two catches at the wall.  Watch, as he wears out the “HEB” sign in right field and robs the Houston Astros J.D. Martinez from a potential 3-run home run, then Matt Dominguez from a solo shot on separate plays (courtesy of MLB.com)

The game ended in a 7-2 Angels win, who says defense doesn’t win in baseball?

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
