Hamilton entered play Wednesday with a cool .315/.403/.469 batting line in 149 plate appearances.

He missed two months earlier this season with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb and had a highly disappointing 2013, so the 33-year-old is looking to make up for lost time. The Angels are currently 47-35 on the year — good enough for second place in the American League West standings.
