Inside the Box: Soriano powers Cubs

After every Arizona Diamondbacks game we’ll examine the
box score and provide you with instant analysis. So it’s
time to go Inside the Box for April 29, 2011: Cubs 4, Diamondbacks
2

The Good:

Justin Upton homered and starter Armando Galraraga went
seven strong innings, allowing just six hits and three
runs. The Diamondbacks, not necessarily known for fast
starts, got out to a 2-0 first inning lead in this one.

The Bad:

The Diamondbacks did not score after the first inning, and
the long ball from the Cubs did them in. Alfonso Soriano
hit a pair of solo homers, one of which was followed by a
eGeovany Soto shot.

The Funky:

Half of the six hits Galarraga allowed were home runs,
which shouldn’t be too surprising when you figure he leads
baseball in that category.
