Darryl Hamilton was a former Major League outfielder who played with several teams from 1988-2001.

Born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Hamilton spent time with the Milwaukee Brewers (1988, 1990-95), Texas Rangers (1996), San Francisco Giants (1997-1998), Colorado Rockies (1998-1999) and New York Mets (1999-2001).

His career totals included a .291 batting average with 51 homers and 454 runs batted in, playing 1328 games. Was a ground ball hitter who rarely struck out.

A great fielder at all outfield positions, Hamilton recorded 2711 putouts, with 46 assists garnering a fielding percentage of .995 in 2771 total chances. He holds the American League records for consecutive errorless chances (541) and errorless games (229).

He played college baseball at Louisiana State University.

 

Hamilton’s life ended tragically at the age of 50.

On Sunday, June 21, 2015, Hamilton and girlfriend Monica Jordan were found dead in a Pearland, Texas residence, in what appeared to be a murder-suicide. Investigators said it appeared Hamilton had been shot more than once and Jordan died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Hamilton and Jordan’s 15 month-old child was found alive by police in the home. It was ruled a murder-suicide.

At the time of his death, he had been working for the MLB Network and MLB.com.

Hamilton was married twice to two celebrities. He was married to Access Hollywood anchor Shaun Robinson in 1994. He also was married to fashion model Ursaline Steinke in 2000, with whom he had two sons. Both marriages ended in divorce.

Washington Nationals ace pitcher Max Scherzer coming off a one-hit shutout, made the next step with a no-hitter in a 6-0 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

It was the Washington Nationals second no-hitter in its history.

His no-hitter joins that of  San Francisco Giants rookie Chris Hesson, who no-hit the New York Mets on June 9 at Citi Field.

The 30-year-old right-hander, was dominating in recording 26 outs pitching a perfect game up to that point.

With the Pirates’ Jose Tabata at the plate and two strikes, Scherzer hit him with a pitch. Most radio and TV reports and replays showed that Tabata, a right-handed batter was leaning out over the plate to get hit with the pitch.

The next batter was the same batter who led off the game with an out, Josh Harrison. Harrison flied out to left field to end the game and send the crowd of 41,104 fans at Nationals Park home happy knowing they witnessed a historical moment.

Scherzer, who is almost always pitch-efficient in his starts, only threw 15 pitches after two innings. For the complete game effort, he threw 106 pitches, 82 for strikes.

He finished with 10 strikeouts and improves his record to 8-5 on the season.

Losing pitcher for the Pirates was lefty Francisco Liriano, who is often the victim of lack of run support. He drops to 4-6.

The Cincinnati Reds lost on Sunday to the LA Dodgers in 11 innings, 1-0.

But the pitching staff did all it could to keep the team in the game and give it a chance to win.

Starting with Tony Cingrani’s 11 strikeouts, Reds’ pitchers racked up a franchise record 20 on the day.

According to published reports, the left-handed Cingrani is the first Reds pitcher to throw at least seven innings with 11 strikeouts with no more than one walk or hit since Johnny Vander Meer in 1941.

The day’s 20th strikeout broke a club record achieved five times, most recently on August 28, 2011, vs. the Washington Nationals. The Dodgers set a Los Angeles club record for strikeouts, with the previous mark being 18 set on May 2, 1995, in a 15-inning loss at their arch-rival San Francisco Giants.

Every baseball fan knows the popular teams due to history are the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers, San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals.

According to the Cincinnati Business Courier, the Cincinnati Reds are among those teams as well.

The Reds were ranked 10th in the latest Yahoo! rankings of the most searched Major League Baseball teams on the world wide web in the past year.

Cincinnati plays in the smallest market of any of the top nine most searched teams, but finished higher than teams in much larger cities Philadelphia Phillies (11th) and the Chicago White Sox (13th).

The Detroit Tigers, the defending American League champions are first followed by the Yankees.
