Game Recap

CHICAGO (AP) -- Alfonso Soriano played like his old self Saturday.

The Chicago Cubs star had four hits, including a go-ahead double in a six-run seventh inning, and showed some flair on the bases to help the Cubs beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-2.

Kosuke Fukudome's first homer since Opening Day capped the seventh-inning rally as the Cubs won their second straight against the team that swept them in the first round of the playoffs last October.

Entering the game batting .191 and slowed earlier this season by a calf injury that landed him the on the disabled list, Soriano twice raced home and scored with good slides to send the largest crowd of the season at Wrigley Field (41,597) into a tizzy.

After a strong performance by Diamondbacks' rookie Max Scherzer, the Cubs trailed 2-1 headed into the seventh when they got to Arizona reliever Chad Qualls (0-4). Mark DeRosa had a leadoff single, Reed Johnson sacrificed and pinch-hitter Daryle Ward dropped an RBI single down the left field line to tie the game.

Pinch-runner Jason Marquis moved to second on a wild pitch and scored on Soriano's double to left center that made it 3-2. When Ryan Theriot singled up the middle, Soriano -- not at full speed -- was still sent home and slid under catcher Chris Snyder after a strong throw from center fielder Chris Young.

Aramis Ramirez added an RBI single off Brandon Medders before Fukudome hit his second homer of the season.

In the third, Soriano scored all the way from first after a soft single to right by Theriot. When Diamondbacks' right fielder B.J. Upton fumbled the ball for an error and then threw it into second baseman Augie Ojeda, Soriano broke for home and scored when Snyder couldn't hang on to Ojeda's throw.

Scherzer allowed five hits and an unearned run in six innings and left with a 2-1 lead. The Diamondbacks' first-round pick in the 2006 draft struck out six, walked one and hit two batters with pitches.

Cubs starter Ryan Dempster gave up only three hits and two runs in six innings. Scott Eyre (1-0), who just came off the disabled list Friday, pitched the seventh.

The Diamondbacks made several nice throws during the game that did catch runners at the plate.

Upton atoned for his earlier error when he caught Derrek Lee's bases-loaded fly ball in the fifth and unleashed a perfect peg to Snyder to easily get Johnson coming home from third.

The Cubs also had a run cut down in the second inning when Ramirez hesitated momentarily off third and then tried to score on Geovany Soto's grounder to second, but was out on a throw from Ojeda.

Arizona, the highest scoring team in the majors managed only one run Friday. On Saturday, they got two in the sixth, thanks to a pair of walks. The Diamondbacks had just four hits.

Ojeda and Stephen Drew opened with singles and one out later, Conor Jackson walked to load the bases. Dempster then walked Upton to force in the tying run before Mark Reynolds hit an RBI grounder to deep short for a 2-1 lead.

Game Notes

Ward was 0-for-14 with six walks as a pinch-hitter this season before his seventh-inning single. ... Arizona 2B Orlando Hudson sat out his fourth straight game with a sore hamstring. ... Eric Byrnes, batting just .225, got the day off for the Diamondbacks. ... It'll be Big Z vs. the Big Unit on Sunday when Carlos Zambrano faces Randy Johnson in a marquee matchup for the series finale. Lou Piniella has managed both. He had Johnson in Seattle when he was the Mariners' ace and one of the game's most dominating pitchers. "On the first and 15th when that paycheck comes in, it tells you who the ace is," Piniella said. "These guys earn it."
