Josh Hamilton error gives A’s two runs, possibly the division (Video)

Josh Hamilton was considered an MVP candidate this season, but the only team he was helping on Wednesday was the Athletics.

Hamilton completely missed a Yoenis Cespedes fly ball with two outs in the fourth inning, allowing the A’s to score two runs to go up 7-5. Had Hamilton made the routine play, the game would have continued tied 5-5. Instead, Oakland added five extra runs as the game went on and won 12-5.

Not only did Hamilton commit a costly two-run error, but he also went just 1-for-5 with three strikeouts at the plate.

Texas was swept by the A’s in the three-game series and improbably blew a 13-game AL West lead over Oakland as of June 30. According to Elias Sports Bureau via ESPN, the Rangers set a record for spending the most days (178) in first place without winning the division.

If the Rangers lose the one-game playoff to the Orioles, a few less hearts will be broken if/when the Rangers decide to let Hamilton walk in free agency.

How could he miss that?
