Alfonso Soriano hit a two-run homer that landed on Waveland Avenue and Anthony Rizzo added a solo shot, helping Chris Volstad and the Cubs beat Madison Bumgarner and the San Francisco Giants 6-4 Friday at Wrigley Field. But the

Giants (75-58) rebounded for a 5-2 win Saturday afternoon. Bumgarner (14-9) has dropped two decisions in a row. He was victimized for five runs, four earned, on six hits in four innings Friday afternoon.
The left-hander retired the first two batters he faced in the third before the Cubs strung together four consecutive hits to build a 5-0 lead. Rizzo got it started with a single to center and Soriano followed with a drive to left on an 0-2 pitch for his 24th homer. Starlin Castro then singled and scored all the way from first on Welington Castillo's double to the gap in left-center.
"I was being stubborn with myself and it cost us another run," Bumgarner said. "You never want to do that."
Despite the loss, the Giants, who beat the Cubs Saturday, own a five-game lead on the Los Angeles Dodgers for first place in the National League West. Bumgarner's next scheduled start will be next Wednesday at home against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
