For a few minutes during Game 6, Josh Hamilton looked like he was going to be the hero. Hamilton, who is playing through a groin injury that would have him on the disabled list if it were the regular season, homered for the first time the entire series. His two-run blast in the 10th inning put Texas up 9-7 before Lance Berkman tied it in the bottom of the inning.
The incredible aspect of Hamilton’s home run is he said God told him it would happen.
“He said, you haven’t hit one in a while and this is the time you’re going to,” Hamilton said. “But there was a period at the end of that. He didn’t say, you’re going to hit it and you’re going to win.’”
The question is what God will tell Hamilton about the Game 7 outcome. Hopefully it will be something positive.
Hamilton says the Rangers players have a good feeling about Game 7 and that they’re not deflated. I hope so, because they’re in a tough spot after being a pitch away from winning the World Series — TWICE — and then blowing it.
Maybe God will speak to Hamilton the way he speaks to Tim Tebow, and they can all celebrate together at the gates of heaven.Google+
