Lee Comes Off DL, Hits Go-Ahead Slam For Pirates
CHICAGO (AP) -- Derrek Lee came off the disabled list and hit a go-ahead grand slam with two outs in the ninth inning to lift the Pittsburgh Pirates over the Chicago Cubs 7-5 on Saturday.

Lee's shot to left through the rain at Wrigley Field came off former teammate Carlos Marmol (2-5), who had his NL-high ninth blown save. Marmol gave up a single and three walks in the inning. Lee drove in five runs in the game.

Chris Resop (5-4) threw two scoreless innings in relief and Joel Hanrahan got three outs for his 34th save.

Alex Presley had three hits and scored a run for the Pirates.

Chicago's Alfonso Soriano matched his season high with four RBIs, hitting a go-ahead, two-run double in the seventh.

The game was delayed for 91 minutes in the seventh because of rain.
