Cubs fans, look at it optimistically, Alfonso Soriano's injury could have been much worse, after an M.R.I. today. The Cubs are reporting there is no serious structural damage in Soriano's left hamstring. He injured the hammy last night trying to make catch. He will be out of the lineup for just a week..
Cubs taking on Greg Maddux and the Padres this afternoon. Felix Pie called up after Soriano was injured last night. His first major league hit, the double to left center, Henry Blanco scores. 3-2 Padres.
Top-14th, game tied at three, Will Ohman making a relief appearance. I've seen tougher pitches inside the cage at Volcano Falls. Geoff Blum doubles to left, Kahli Green scores.
Trevor Hoffman one of the leagues top relievers, knows how to close.. Henry Blanco at second, Ronny Cedeno window shopping, caught looking.
Padres win 4-3
