Josh Hamilton hit a two-run home run against the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 6 of the World Series.  Hamilton’s home run gave the Rangers a 9-7 lead in the 10th inning.  At the time, it looked like Hamilton’s home run would go down as a legendary game-winning blast.  However, the Cardinals tied the game in the bottom of the 10th and went on to win the game in the 11th inning after David Freese hit a walk-off home run.

“He told me, ‘You haven’t hit one in a while, and this is the time you’re going to,’ ” Hamilton said.  “You know what?  I probably had the most relaxed, peaceful at-bat I’ve had of the whole series at that moment.  It’s pretty cool.  You ought to try it sometime.”

Hamilton had gone 65 at-bats in the postseason without hitting a home run before his two-run blast in the 10th inning against the Cardinals.  “There was a period at the end of [the sentence],” said Hamilton.  “He didn’t say, ‘You’re going to hit it and you’re going to win.’ ”
