Rangers Get Back In Win Column

By  | 

TORONTO -- Sammy Sosa hit his 595th career home run and the
Texas Rangers beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-to-3. Mark Teixeira
and Brad Wilkerson both had two-run shots.
It was the seventh home run of the season for Sosa and his first
hit in 11 career at-bats against Josh Towers, who is 1-and-3 with
the loss.
Sosa is within five of becoming the fifth player in major league
history to hit 600 or more home runs. He homered twice at Cleveland
on Thursday, giving him home runs in a major league-record 44
Robinson Tejada is 3-and-1 with the win for Texas. He struck out
seven and walked one in five and a-third innings.
