Hamilton wins Silver Slugger

Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton has won an American League Silver Slugger award.

Hamilton was one of three AL outfielders to earn the honor, which goes to the best offensive player at each position. The award shouldn’t come as a surprise as Hamilton led the AL with 130 RBI. He also hit 32 homers and had a .304 batting average.

Hamilton finished the season with 72 extra-base hits.

He’s the first Ranger to be selected to the Silver Slugger team since 2005. Both Mark Teixeira and Alfonso Soriano made the team that year.
