Who's Sori Now?
Left Fielder Cranks 2 HRs in Cubs 3-1 WinOh, so that's how you beat the lowly Pirates: You hold them to one run, and you have your left fielder Alfonso Soriano — the guy who'd homered twice in his previous 28 games — crank two solo round-trippers. Crafty lefty (is there any other kind?) Ted Lilly was again strong, going seven innings and allowing a mere one run. Did Lilly just prove he might be the Cubs' ace, or did he up his trade value? Maybe both. Other than Soriano's bombs, though, the Cubs' offense didn't exactly wow us. But hey... one-game winning streak! Woo-hoo!
