Alfonso Soriano hit his first home run of the season, Anthony Rizzo also homered and the Chicago Cubs beat the Texas Rangers 6-2 Thursday at a soggy Wrigley Field. Despite torrential rains that caused citywide floods, the teams were able to play in an occasional drizzle.
The Cubs and Texas were rained out Wednesday. Rizzo hit a two-run homer in the third inning and Soriano followed with a shot that gave the Cubs a 5-0 lead against Alexi Ogando (2-1).
Soriano's homer accounted for his first RBI of the season.
