ARLINGTON (AP) – The numbers for Texas Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton are just mind-boggling.

As a new week started Monday, Hamilton was leading the major leagues with a .402 batting average, 18 home runs and 44 RBIs. He had nine homers and 18 RBIs the past seven days.

The Rangers (23-12) have the American League’s best record.
