Right fielder Sammy Sosa cracked 2 homeruns and had 4 RBI as the Ball State Cardinals defeated the Decatur Deadheads by the score of 13 to 7 at Polo Grounds '41.

Sosa had a big day at the plate. He belted a three-run homer in the 4th inning, laced a base-hit in the 6th inning and ripped a solo home run (his 42nd of the season) in the 7th inning. Ball State rapped out 14 hits for the afternoon.

The win was credited to Bill Hallahan(8-5) who went 6 and 2/3 innings allowing 5 runs. Eppa Rixey(8-15) absorbed the loss. He got hit hard, allowing 8 hits and 3 walks in 3 and 2/3 innings.

'I didn't feel that good when I came to the park today,' Sosa said. 'I'm glad I decided to play!'
