Abreu has a career .348 average at Wrigley Field and a .522 mark against Silva. Abreu wanted to join the Cubs after the 2008 season but they instead signed Milton Bradley, who turned out to be a bust and was traded to Seattle for Silva.
Lee led off the Chicago fourth with a homer and the Cubs made it 2-all in the fifth on Soto's sacrifice fly.
NOTES: Angels manager Mike Scioscia was encouraged by the progress of Aybar, who hyperextended his left knee Monday in a collision with Milwaukee's Casey McGehee. Scioscia said the shortstop might not have to go on the DL but won't know for sure for a few days. ... The Angels are 31-9 when they score first. ... Batting leadoff for the first time, Colvin went 2 for 4 with a walk. He couldn't remember ever batting first in high school, college or the minors. ... Although Silva faced seven batters and gave up four hits in the fourth, he threw only 15 pitches in the inning.
