ARLINGTON (AP) – Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton is out of the lineup for the first time since a hot streak that vaulted him to the American League lead in all three Triple Crown categories.

Hamilton was the last of five key starters to get a rest in a four-game stretch that ends Thursday against Oakland.

The former AL MVP has cooled off some – but not much – since hitting .467 (14 of 30) with two doubles, nine homers and 18 RBIs over seven games. The run was sparked by the 16th four-homer game in major league history May 8 at Baltimore.

Homerless in his past four games, Hamilton still has a 16-game hitting streak. He entered Thursday leading the AL in average (.404), homers (18) and RBIs (45).
