Soriano scratched with sore right hand
SAN DIEGO -- Cubs outfielder Alfonso Soriano was scratched from Tuesday's lineup because of swelling in his right hand. His status was day to day.

Soriano, who is one home run shy of 20, injured his hand sliding into second base in the sixth inning on Monday. He said his hand was accidentally spiked by Padres second baseman Logan Forsythe.

"I don't feel comfortable holding the bat," Soriano said.

He was to undergo X-rays as a precautionary measure.

"He tried swinging a bat and couldn't do it," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said.

"I can't be Superman," Soriano said.
