Cubs Silence Sosa in 5-4 Win

Lee went 2-for-5, including an R-B-I double that snapped a four-all tie in the sixth. He was in the lineup after appealing the five-game suspension he received for fighting San Diego pitcher Chris Young last weekend.

Sosa remains stuck at 599 homers after going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts against his former team. Sosa has just one rount-tripper in the past 21 games.

Felix Pie (PEE'-ay) laced a two-run triple in the win.

The Cubs' bullpen tossed five no-hit innings after the Rangers hit three homers off Sean Mashall. Ian Kinsler hit a two-run shot that tied the game in the fifth. Kinsler and Brad Wilkerson also hit solo shots.

Carlos Marmol threw three perfect innings of relief to get to 2-and-0. Ryan Dempster picked up his 16th save and Joaquin Benoit dipped to 2-and-2.
