Sammy Sosa, who hit 545 homers with the Cubs, hit his 600th off Jason Marquis, who wears Sosa's old No. 21 jersey, in the fifth inning as the Cubs fell to the Rangers. Alfonso Soriano and Koyie Hill also added homers, but three errors and Marquis' laborious night proved to be too much.
Sammy Sosa became the fifth player to hit 600 career homers, and he did it against his former team. The slugger touched Jason Marquis for the historic blast on a solo shot in the fifth as the Rangers rolled.
a-Doubled for DeRosa in the 2nd. b-Struck out for Jones in the 9th.
