Hamilton's struggles continue in 1-for-5 outing

Posted May 16, 2013

Josh Hamilton hit his fifth homer of the season Tuesday in a 6-2 win over the Royals.

But after going 1-for-5 Wednesday in a 9-5 loss to Kansas City, his batting average dipped to .213 on a disappointing team (15-25) team. The game ended with longtime Angels manager Mike Scioscia getting a vote of support from owner Arte Moreno, but that sort of thing sometimes turns out to be a kiss of death from the front office. Scioscia is in his 14th season with the team and pushed for the signing of Hamilton.

Hamilton's move to Angels hardly heavenly thus far

As WRAL’s Mandy Mitchell pointed out earlier this week in her Mitchell Report, the season obviously is young and there’s plenty of time for Hamilton and the talented Angels to find their footing and move to the top of the American League West standings.

After signing a 5-year, $125 million contract in December of 2012, Hamilton revamped his life by leaving the Texas Rangers for the Los Angeles Angels.

In Los Angeles, Hamilton thus far is learning that while the money may be guaranteed, continued success at the plate is not.

    Hopefully, Hamilton will find his stride and get back to the homerun machine he has been in the past.
