CHICAGO -- A quick look at the Chicago Cubs’ 4-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday at Wrigley Field.
The good: Randy Wells earned the win, pitching six strong inning while allowing just one run, a leadoff shot by Arizona’s Willie Bloomquist. Alfonso Soriano homered for the second straight game. The veteran outfielder also contributed an RBI single. After a blown save by closer Carlos Marmol on Sunday, five bullpen pitchers combined to shut out Arizona over the last three innings.
Beyond the box score: Just 26,292 seats were sold, the smallest paid crowd in nine years at the Friendly Confines.
