Joey Gallo, Bishop Gorman

Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton put forth a Herculean effort last night, slugging four homers in a 10-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles.

It was the first four-homer game in the majors in almost nine years.

However, it was not the first four-home run game of the season.

Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas) slugger Joey Gallo belted four dingers in a blowout victory three weeks ago.

The 6-foot-5 first baseman finished the day 5-for-5 with a walk and eight RBI.

A four-year varsity player, Gallo has had seven multi-home run games, including two games last season in which he drilled three homers.

He's the No. 8 player in the class of 2012 according to MaxPreps.com's Kevin Askeland. He's hitting .527 on the season with 15 home runs, on the heels of a fine junior campaign in which he notched 25 round trippers.

Also a top pitcher for Bishop Gorman, the Sin City star could be a first round draft pick in June's Major League Baseball Draft.

Bishop Gorman is currently 32-2 on the season, with its only two losses coming to out-of-state foes at the National High School Invitational.
