Soler impresses again in home debut

CHICAGO -- Talk to anyone that’s been around Chicago Cubs rookie Jorge Soler, both in the minors and in his first week of his major league career, and three words keep coming up: “He is strong.” That strength has propelled him to achieve a feat only two other players have accomplished in the last 100 years, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. He’s the third to earn at least one extra-base hit in his first five games in the majors after collecting two more in the Cubs' 4-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers in Soler’s Wrigley Field debut Monday.

Cardinals overcome 5-run deficit to beat Cubs

ST. LOUIS – Matt Holliday long has been a thorn in the side of Cubs starter Travis Wood.

Kernels: One-hit wonders

Our weekly look at the interesting and unusual in MLB couldn't help but notice the "hits" column. • Although there hasn't been a no-hitter since Tim Lincecum's on June 25, this week kept us on watch. Since Monday we've seen more than a dozen no-hit bids get into the fifth inning-- including Saturday's game between the Houston Astros and Texas Rangers where both pitchers did it. Four of those bids persisted into the seventh inning, and two into the eighth.

Cubs will use September to learn, spoil

ST. LOUIS -- Another September will begin with the Chicago Cubs far from playoff contention, but the team still has goals for the final month.
