Manny's countdown to 500 bombs


Soriano is a Red Hot Chili Pepper

Soriano has finally busted out of his April slump.
After a horrible start to the season, Alfonso Soriano is finally swinging a hot bat.

He smoked two homers Friday and two more Saturday during the Chicago Cubs' 7-6 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. Soriano, who tied a career high by leading off his fifth game with a hit, has 20 hits in his last 37 at-bats, raising his average to .295.
