CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs youthful energy is rubbing off on Alfonso Soriano. The 37-year-old outfielder hit two of the Cubs season high five home runs and Travis Wood earned his first win in nearly six weeks in Chicagos 7-2 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night. "We have so much talent in this clubhouse," Soriano said. "Its a long season and they have to believe in themselves because they have the talent." Anthony Rizzo, Starlin Castro and Darwin Barney also homered for Chicago in the interleague game, the Cubs fourth straight win. "Obviously a lot of power -- the Sori show continues," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. "Barneys home run was huge and Castro put a great swing on that ball and hammered it as well." Its Soriano who seems rejuvenated while playing with so many youngsters. He is hitting .400 with eight home runs and 17 RBIs in his last 11 games. "Thirty-seven years old, to do what hes doing again, and carrying a ballclub at a time when we really needed it offensively with the way our guys have been pitching, is tremendous," Sveum said. "Its like hes a rookie out there." Wood (6-6) allowed four hits over 6 2-3 innings, with two walks and five strikeouts, to earn his first victory since May 30. Wood, who was named to the National League All-Star team, retired 14 straight Angels from the start of the second inning until allowing a two-out single in the sixth. He gave up Albert Pujols two-run homer in the seventh and left with two runners on and two out. "Its a very stout lineup," Wood said of the Angels. "Theyre pretty solid through and through. For us to go out there and have the game that we did is pretty outstanding." Joe Blanton (2-11) went five innings, giving up eight hits, including four homers, and six runs with three walks and three strikeouts. He leads the majors in losses. Rizzo and Soriano hit back-to-back home runs in the first inning with two outs, the second time this season theyve done it. Castro gave Chicago a 3-0 lead with his fifth homer in the third. Barneys fifth homer of the season came in the sixth after Dioner Navarro doubled and Nate Schierholtz was hit by a pitch. Blanton left trailing 6-0 after allowing Barneys homer. "I really didnt have good stuff tonight," Blanton said. "It was just one of those games. I tried to battle through, but I made too many mistakes over the plate. "The three-run (homer by Barney) hurts the worst. You can live through solos and battle around everything else. Three-run homers kill you, but honestly, all of them." Soriano hit his 387th career home run and 15th of the year in the seventh off Michael Kohn. "Im not going to tell you how were trying to get him out, but Soriano is a guy if you miss some spots and sometimes if youre hitting spots, he has the ability to hit a wide range of pitches hard like he did tonight," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. Sorianos hot streak has coincided with the hottest days weather-wise this season. "When its warm, my body is loose and I feel my hands," he said. "I like when its hot." Pujols ended Woods bid for a shutout with his 14th homer of the year, a two-run shot in the seventh. The win left the Cubs 40-48. They havent been better in relation to .500 since May 31 when they were 23-30.
