Alfonso Soriano's first homer was his seventh leadoff blast of the season. (Jerry Lai/AP)
 Soriano leads off with a homer
 Soriano's second blast
Alfonso Soriano led off with a home run and added a three-run go-ahead blast in the seventh, but disaster loomed. After Jason Marquis had retired the first 14 batters he faced and exited after seven, Ryan Dempster allowed four runs in the ninth that saw the Cubs fall into a first-place tie with idle Milwaukee.
