Cubs Use 5 HRs to Top Halos

CHICAGO (AP) - Alfonso Soriano hit two of the Cubs' season high five home runs and Travis Wood earned his first win in nearly six weeks in Chicago's 7-2 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night.

Anthony Rizzo, Starlin Castro and Darwin Barney also homered for Chicago in the interleague game.

Wood gave up four hits over 6 2-3 innings and retired 14 straight from the second inning into the sixth for his first victory since May 30.

Rizzo and Soriano hit back-to-back home runs in the first inning, Castro hit a solo homer to center in the third and Barney hit a three-run homer in the sixth. All came off Joe Blanton, who leads the majors in losses.

Soriano added a solo homer, his 15th this year, in the seventh off Michael Kohn.
