Timing plays historic role
Rangers 7, Cubs 3
Jacque Jones collides with Texas' Brad Wilkerson on a play at first base. (Tony Gutierrez/AP)
 Soriano's homer
 Hill's two-run homer
Sammy Sosa, who hit 545 homers with the Cubs, hit his 600th off Jason Marquis, who wears Sosa's old No. 21 jersey, in the fifth inning as the Cubs fell to the Rangers. Alfonso Soriano and Koyie Hill also added homers, but three errors and Marquis' laborious night proved to be too much.
