Soriano homers twice as Cubs beat Rockies 11-4

MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Alfonso Soriano hit two home runs and a double to send Dale Sveum and the Chicago Cubs to an 11-4 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday.

It was Sveum's first victory since he was hired to manage the Cubs in November.

Soriano led off the Cubs' four-run second inning with a drive that hit halfway up the scoreboard in left field. He led off the third with a double to the wall in center and added a two-run homer in a four-run fifth.

Guillermo Moscoso gave up four runs and five hits in two innings for Colorado.

Cubs right-hander Matt Garza (1-0), who is being considered for the opening-day start, allowed two runs and three hits over two innings in his spring debut.
