Sosa closer to history

As homers go, it wasn't his most impressive, but Sammy Sosa moved a step closer to the milestone of 600 with a fourth-inning shot of Casey Fossum on Wedensday. The two-run blast also put the Rangers ahead 2-1.

Sosa now has 597 homers, three shy of becoming the fifth member of the 600 club. It was the second homer Sosa hit off Fossum. He also got number 585 on July 24, 2005.
