Josh Hamilton clubbed two homers for the Rangers in his fifth game back in the big leagues, mostly on the Angels' dime. What must really gnaw on his old team -- his old team in Anaheim, that is -- is that it could really use a hitter like him right now for the middle of the lineup.
The Angels have a total of five homers from their cleanup hitters this season, and the collective OPS of the guys batting in the No. 4 spot in their lineup is .579, almost 100 points lower than the team ranked 29th in cleanup-spot OPS:
30. Angels' No. 4 spot: .579 OPS
29. Rockies: .673
28. Oakland: .679
27. Boston: .694
The problem was so bad that on May 18, Angels manager Mike Scioscia shifted Kole Calhoun out of the leadoff spot -- he has been one of baseball's best leadoff hitters -- into the No. 4 spot.
