MESA, Ariz. (AP) -- Alfonso Soriano hit his fourth home run this spring and Paul Maholm pitched two innings in his exhibition debut Monday as the Chicago Cubs beat the Cincinnati Reds 8-6. Maholm missed a handful of days early in spring because of the flu. He allowed two hits, including a solo homer by Todd Frazier. Red starter Bronson Arroyo gave up hits to the first five Cubs batters, with Soriano's shot nearly clearing the scoreboard in left-center field. Chicago reliever Carlos Marmol allowed three earned runs in his one inning. Joe Mather also homered for the Cubs.
