Cubs Fun Fact of the Day — Alfonso Soriano is on Fire

Posted on 03 May 2010 by Lou

This is a big surprise for me, but we’re going with Alfonso Soriano as our Cubs Fun Fact of the Day.  Soriano has been on fire of late and he helped lead the Cubs to 2 big wins over the DBacks on Saturday and Sunday at Wrigley Field.

Soriano has hit a home run in each of his last 3 games, including 2 2-run bombs in Sunday’s 10-5 win.  Soriano is hitting .325 with a stellar .382 on-base percentage.  He already has 6 home runs and 17 RBI’s on the season, and we’re just 26 games in.  Considering Soriano hit only 20 home runs and drove in 55 runs in 117 games in 2009, he is well ahead of pace (he also had an atrocious .241 batting average and .303 on-base percentage?!).  Now I know, he hasn’t gotten hurt yet, but who knows, maybe getting a few extra days off here and there with Tyler Colvin playing more will be a blessing in disguise.  Maybe getting reunited with Rudy Jaramillo – his old hitting coach in Texas – has helped.  Maybe the unusually warm weather has helped too.

Whatever it is, something is clearly clicking with Soriano in 2010 – let’s hope he can keep it up…
