5/5 Soriano 1 HR away from club mark

Alfonso Soriano is on the verge of a club record heading into Wednesday’s game. He has hit in four straight games for the first time in his career, and needs a homer Wednesday to tie the Cubs’ all-time record of five straight games, shared by Sammy Sosa (June 3-8, 1998), Ryne Sandberg (Aug. 7-11, 1989), and Hack Wilson (July 3-7, 1928).

Soriano and teammate Derrek Lee both have 297 career homers, and are in a race to see who will be the 126th Major League player to reach 300.

Off subject – but what ails the Cub ( and MLB) websites ? They take one back to the early dial-up days.
