After Elvis Andrus had a leadoff single in the third, Young hit his fifth homer on the next pitch.
Cruz led off the fourth with the only walk from Silva, then scored on Julio Borbon's two-out single.
Chicago opened the game with three consecutive singles against Wilson. Starlin Castro, the 20-year-old rookie shortstop, beat out a bunt for an infield single before Derrek Lee's RBI single made it 1-0. Marlon Byrd then drove in a run with a groundout before Soriano hit his ninth homer of the season, his second two-run shot in two games.
NOTES: Young has 320 career doubles, matching Juan Gonzalez for third on the Rangers' list, one behind Rafael Palmeiro and 32 behind Ivan Rodriguez. ... Cubs 3B Aramis Ramirez was out of the lineup again with recurring soreness between his left thumb and index finger. Ramirez had missed two games before being the DH on Saturday night, when he was 0 for 5 with four strikeouts. ... Wilson, the former reliever, had gone nearly 88 innings over 44 appearances without allowing a homer until two in the final inning of his previous start Tuesday. Then another in the first Sunday. ... The attendance for the three-game series was 122,900, the largest at Rangers Ballpark since the Yankees visited in July 2006.
