The dinger ended a 23-game homerless streak for Hamilton, who now sports a nice .313/.389/.469 batting line this season.

Josh Hamilton hit a solo home run in his return to the Angels' lineup on Tuesday.

The homer was his only hit in three at-bats, but he put a charge into a pitch in the first inning that Dexter Fowler caught on Tal's Hill for a long out. Hamilton was red hot before going down with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in early April, and if he can keep it going he'll be in for a very productive second half of the season.
