Sosa reaches No. 500
Sammy Sosa became the 18th player to hit 500 career homers, connecting for a solo shot Friday night in the Cincinnati Reds' new ballpark.
After getting hit by a pitch, striking out and flying out, Sosa lined a 1-2 pitch from reliever Scott Sullivan into the seats in right field, touching off a standing ovation as he rounded the bases. C3
No surgery for Jeter
Derek Jeter and the New York Yankees might have caught a big break: The All-Star shortstop probably won't need surgery.
Team doctors said Friday that Jeter's shoulder injury should be treated "conservatively" instead of with an operation that could have sidelined the heart and soul of the Yankees for most of the season.
