Johnny Damon rocketed 2 homeruns and had 4 RBI as the Kemper Messengers topped the Orlando Sled Dogs by a score of 4 to 2 at Turner Field '05.

Damon enjoyed a fine day at the plate. He lost the ball over the fence for three runs in the 3rd inning and smashed a bases-empty 'big-fly' (his 9th of the season) in the 8th inning. Orlando was set down quietly in the 9th.

Don Sutton(16-5) was the winner allowing 2 runs in 7 innings. Sutton got help from Dennis Eckersley who was credited with his 22nd save. Mario Soto(8-14) was tagged with the loss. He gave up 6 hits and 3 walks in 7 innings.

Kemper continued on their recent roll, their winning streak now reaching 6 games and counting. Nala was upset but philosophical about the loss. 'Sometimes you run into a team that's on a roll. This was one of those times.'
