Sammy Sosa launched 2 homeruns and had 4 RBI as the Tampa Barnstormer 2 topped the Hell's Kitchen Punishers by a score of 5 to 3 at Minute Maid Field '05.

Sosa was really in 'the zone'. He blasted a two-run home run in the 1st inning, delivered a base-hit which scored a run in the 3rd inning, blasted a solo shot (his 34th of the season) in the 6th inning and hit a single in the 8th inning. Hell's Kitchen threatened in the 9th but their rally came up short.

Atley Donald(8-5) was the winner allowing 3 runs in 8 innings. Chad Bradford earned his 4th save. Eggie Hensley(2-3) was charged with the loss. He allowed 5 runs and 9 hits in 8 innings.

Larry was beaming after the game, 'Not only were we making good contact, but a lot of balls we hit seemed to have 'eyes'! I just love winning these tight ones! It was just our day - no doubt about it!'
