The Cubs offense is struggling of late, with Darwin Barney, Starlin Castro, Luis Valbuena and Bryan LaHair all in minor slumps.
But Alfonso Soriano remains hot.
He needs one more home run to post his 11th consecutive 20-homer season. He would join only Boston's David Ortiz in that catagory, including the current season. Albert Pujols, now with the Los Angeles Angeles, nees two homers to reach the milestone.
His next homer also will make Soriano the only Cub to join Hall of Famer Andrew Dawson in hitting at least 20 homers in each of their first six seasons with the team.
In the field, Soriano also is the only major league left fielder to have handled at least 150 chances without an error. He is one of only four major league outfielders to have handled that many without an error. The others are Curtis Granderson (Yankees), Austin Jackson (Tigers) and Shane Victorino (Phillies).
