HOUSTON -- Geovany Soto didn't get the automatic home run he
deserved, but it didn't matter as the Chicago Cubs beat the Houston
Astros 7-2 on Monday night.

Soto was credited with an inside-the-park homer in the fourth
inning despite replays showing that it should have been an
automatic home run. The ball bounced just to the right of the
yellow line on the wall in left-center field. Astros center fielder
Michael Bourn scooped it up and threw it home, but Soto scored
easily before the throw got there.

Aramis Ramirez singled and Kosuke Fukudome walked before the
hit. Ramirez added an indisputable two-run homer to the back row of
the stands in the left field Crawford Boxes in the ninth inning.
