Cubs Prevail And Beat Pirates, Iowa Blown Out,

The Chicago Cubs looked to change their fortunes against the Pirates today, and a solid outing by Ted Lilly and two blast by Alfonso Soriano led the Cubs to a 3-1 victory at Wrigley Field. The scoring started in the 2nd inning when Koyie Hill doubled, advancing to 3rd on a Passed Ball by Ryan Doumit. Starlin Castro came through with a Sacrifice Fly to send him home though the play was close due to a strong throw by Tabata. The Cubs would score again in the 4th when Alfonso Soriano hit a Solo Homer, despite a strong wind blowing in, to make it 2-0 Cubs. Ryan Doumit redeemed himself in the 5th, when he homered to make it 2-1, the first and only run the Pirates would score. It wouldn’t stay that way for long, as Soriano hit his second Solo Blast of the game to make it 3-1 Cubs. Lilly picked up the Win and Marmol earned the Save, striking out two in a 1-2-3 9th inning.
