|Cubs Hot Hitting Beats D-Backs
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Alfonso Soriano hit a three-run homer and the Chicago Cubs connected for four in all while rallying to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 11-5 Friday after getting pounded the previous day.
Kosuke Fukudome, Geovany Soto and Marlon Byrd added solo shots as the Cubs shook off a 13-5 beating by the Diamondbacks and stopped a three-game skid.
The big blow was Soriano's three-run drive off Rodrigo Lopez (1-1), capping a four-run sixth that put Chicago ahead 6-4 and made a winner of Randy Wells (3-0). The Cubs broke it open with three in the seventh, getting two bases-loaded walks, after Chris Snyder led off the top half with a homer.
