Cubs win, at last!

Posted:
CHICAGO (KWWL) -

The Chicago Cubs stopped their 12-game losing streak as Alfonso Soriano hit a go-ahead home run in an 11-7 win over the San Diego Padres. The Cubs' skid was their worst since they opened the 1997 season with 14 straight losses.

Chicago trailed 7-6 in the sixth inning when Soriano launched a drive off Alex Hinshaw over the right-field bleachers onto Waveland Avenue.

Soriano had three hits and drove in three runs. Ian Stewart and Starlin Castro each homered and drove in three for the Cubs.
