(BaseballStL) -- Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton entered Game 6 with only three hits during the World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals and no home runs in the entire postseason.
Hamilton hit a go-ahead two-run home run in the top of the 10th inning to inch the Rangers closer to their first World Series championship. The Cardinals scored two runs in the bottom of the 10th inning to send it to the 11th inning.
Hamilton was 3-for-6 with three RBIs and reached base safely four times in Game 6.
Hamilton also scored a go-ahead run from first base on a double by Michael Young after reaching base on an error by Cardinals third baseman David Freese in the top of the 5th inning.
The Ranger slugger has reportedly been playing with a possible sports hernia during this postseason.
Hamilton is hitting .240 with five RBIs in the World Series.
