CHICAGO, IL - Alfonso Soriano drove in three runs to support Chris Volstad and help the Chicago Cubs beat the San Francisco Giants, 6-4, in the opener of a three-game series at Wrigley Field.
Volstad (2-9) limited the National League West leaders to two runs on five hits and three walks over 5 2/3 innings. The Chicago right-hander had snapped a 24-start winless streak in his last outing Sunday.
Madison Bumgarner (14-9) pitched only four frames for the Giants, allowing five runs -- four earned -- on six hits and two walks.
Buster Posey finished 3-for-3 with a walk and two RBI for San Francisco, which had won six in a row on the road and was coming off a three-game sweep in Houston.
