Right fielder Sammy Sosa smacked 2 homeruns and had 4 RBI and Art Houtteman allowed Larry to rest his bullpen, tossing a complete game as the Tampa Barnstormer 2 defeated the Boyd's Justified 9 to 3 at Minute Maid Field '05.

Sosa helped send the fans home happy. He smacked a single plating a run in the 1st inning, lofted a solo-blast 'downtown' in the 4th inning and lifted one out of the park for a two run home run (his 28th of the season) in the 5th inning. Tampa rapped out 12 hits for the afternoon.

The win was credited to Houtteman(5-4) who went the whole way allowing 3 runs. Ray Caldwell(8-4) was the losing pitcher. He was touched for 3 homeruns in his 4 innings of work.

'It's almost like the ball was trying to hit my bat,' Sosa said. 'Whenever I would swing, the ball found the sweet spot.'
