Soto pumped his right fist as his 11th homer cleared the wall in right in the second -- a sharp contrast from Saturday, when he couldn't hang onto Colvin's throw from left and allowed Brian Schneider to score the tying run in a four-run ninth.
The Cubs added to their lead, getting two-out singles from Gorzelanny, Colvin and Castro to drive in another run. Colvin then scored on catcher Carlos Ruiz's throwing error attempting to stop Castro from stealing second, making it 4-0.
NOTES: Dobbs' solo drive off Cashner in the eighth was his seventh career pinch-hit homer. ... Carlos Zambrano could rejoin the Cubs by the end of the month after undergoing anger management counseling following his dugout confrontation with Derrek Lee. Manager Lou Piniella says the right-hander likely will throw a simulated game on Monday at the team's training complex in Mesa, Ariz., and pitch for Triple-A Iowa later this week. Piniella says Zambrano could rejoin the Cubs during their six-game road trip that starts July 26.
