Josh Hamilton knows the remedy for the back spasms the kept him out of Tuesday’s lineup, an injury he has dealt with in the past. The Angels right fielder took some muscle relaxers Tuesday night, woke up sore but not so much that he couldn’t play Wednesday.
“I was just making a swing and felt it grab me,” Hamilton said. “It’s happened before. I knew exactly what it was when I felt it and I knew it would subside in a few hours.”
