Re: Hamilton's Louisville debut
Hamilton quickly back in the swing
Has three homers in two games for Bats
HOUSTON -- Johnny Narron, the major-league video/administrative coach, is with Josh Hamilton on Hamilton's stint with Triple-A Louisville.
It must have helped make Hamilton feel right at home in his native North Carolina.
Hamilton, who hit the first pitch he saw for a home run against Charlotte Tuesday night, hit home runs in his first two at-bats in Wednesday's 13-6 victory over Charlotte.

He finished 2-for-5 and is hitting .375 in two games.
Hamilton is eligible to come off the disabled list Sunday. The Reds originally had planned for him to join the club in St. Louis Tuesday after Monday's off day.
Will the fact that Ryan Freel was placed on the DL affect that decision?
"He's eligible to come off Sunday," manager Jerry Narron said.
Johnny Narron will remain with the Bats as long as Hamilton does. Hamilton has had his well-documented problems off the field, and the Reds have been up-front about Narron's role in helping Hamilton both with baseball and away from the game.
