BALTIMORE -- Josh Hamilton said he was able to get back the baseballs he hit for his third and fourth home runs on Tuesday night. Reliever Mike Adams was on the case.

Both home runs were hit over the center-field fence into an area of Camden Yards where there is no seating. There is an opening area directly behind the center-field wall and in front of the batter's eye, and then the Orioles' bullpen is to the left of that area.

That's where the third and fourth home runs landed. One was retrieved by a security guard and the other by a member of the Orioles' bullpen. Adams retrieved them both.

"They're back at my hotel room," Hamilton said. "Somebody asked me what I'll do with them. I said they'll probably end up in a closet or in the backyard rolling down the slide with my girls."
