Ranger's Hamilton Says He Might Have Sports Hernia
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Texas Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton says he might be playing with a sports hernia. He will worry about it after the World Series.

Hamilton said before Game 3 on Saturday night that he is speculating he has a sports hernia based on how it feels. He missed a month during the 2009 season after surgery for what was eventually diagnosed as a sports hernia.

Hamilton says it's a non-factor for him right now and that he is "going to get through it.'' The tests and any medical needs can wait until after the World Series.

His injury this postseason had been described as a groin injury.

Going into Saturday night's game, Hamilton was hitting .250 with no homers in 48 postseason at-bats.
