CHICAGO (AP) -Derrek Lee homered, Alfonso Soriano had a key RBI double before scoring the go-ahead run against his former team and the Chicago Cubs rallied from four runs down Friday to beat the Washington Nationals 6-4.
Playing for the first time against the team for which he hit 46 homers and stole 41 bases last season, Soriano tied the game with a two-out RBI double in the fourth inning. He scored Chicago's fifth run on Cliff Floyd's single.
In the third, Soriano started a three-run rally by beating out an infield single. One out later, Lee followed with a two-out, two-run homer. It was Lee's second homer of the season.
Chicago starter Carlos Zambrano (3-2) gave up a three-run homer to Austin Kearns in a four-run first inning and lasted six innings, giving up six hits and four runs. Ryan Dempster pitched the ninth for his sixth save in as many chances.
Nationals starter Jason Bergmann (0-3) allowed eight hits and five runs - four earned - in six innings.
