Sammy Sosa cracked 2 homeruns and had 6 RBI and Larry Dierker went the distance as the Ragnar Lothbrok defeated the Chudley Cannons by a score of 9 to 4 at Busch Stadium '78.

Sosa was unconscious all day. The Chudley fans hated to see him approaching the batter's box as he just kept delivering base hits! He lofted a three-run bomb in the 3rd inning and smacked a three-run homer (his 33rd of the season) in the 5th inning. Ragnar rapped out 8 hits for the afternoon.

Dierker(3-4) finished the game allowing 4 runs in the victory. Glen Hobbie(6-13) was the losing pitcher. He was unable to control the Ragnar offense and allowed 8 hits and 5 walks in 5 and 1/3 innings.

The Ragnar ballclub's record now stands at 55-83. Not able to get much going in recent weeks, Chudley is 2-8 of late and now has an overall record of 63-75.
