Texas wranglers: Cubs prevail
Cubs enjoy sweet relief
Sean Marshall allowed three homers in four-plus innings, but the 'pen tossed five perfect innings, including Carlos Marmol's three sparkling frames and five Ks, to lift the Cubs in the opener. Felix Pie got Chicago started with a two-run triple, and Derrek Lee drove in the go-ahead run on a double.

Series at a glance:
Kinsler can't save Rangers
Ian Kinsler belted two homers and Brad Wilkerson chipped in with a solo shot, but the Rangers couldn't overtake the Cubs. Robinson Tejeda allowed two earned runs in five innings, and Sammy Sosa went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in his 600th-homer bid.
