Sosa homers in loss
Angels 6, Rangers 3
Vicente Padilla allowed just three earned runs in seven innings. (Matt Slocum/AP)
 Sosa hits No. 596
Sammy Sosa picked the right spot to crush his 596th career home run, but it was too little, too late for the Rangers. Sosa's two-run shot knocked Angels starter John Lackey out of the game in the ninth inning, but the Rangers could not score again.
