Young guns ignite D-backs
Cubs face tough road
Geovany Soto attempted to awaken the Cubs' bats from their slumber with a two-run homer in the second inning, but it was another long night in Arizona. Ted Lilly served up a three-run jack in the bottom of the frame and did not make it out of the fourth as Chicago fell into an 0-2 hole in the NLDS.
