Soriano back in Cubs lineup

Alfonso Soriano returns to the Cubs lineup Friday night against Randy Wolf and the Brewers. Soriano was hit in the right arm on Wednesday night and manager Mike Quade held him out of Thursday’s game with a bruised forearm.

“He was a little swollen but he’s been good to go,” Quade said. “Wolf’s been tough on us, especially our left-handers. So I was glad (Soriano) was OK. (Hopefully he’ll) hit some balls out of the ballpark or in the gap. We have all right-handed hitters in the lineup tonight, so we’ll see if that helps.”
