PHOENIX. -- Alfonso Soriano hit six home runs last spring, and even though the Cubs outfielder got off to a slow start, he finished with 32 home runs and a career-high 108 RBIs.

On Thursday night, Soriano, 37, connected on his fourth spring home run.

"My hands are still quick, and I know if I swing at a good pitch, I'll hit the ball hard," Soriano said Friday. "I'm working on being selective at home plate. I see on my video that when I swing at a good pitch, I hit it good."

And that's how he felt last spring. Cubs hitting coach James Rowson has figured out Soriano's routine, and the two seem to be working well together.

"He knows my swing, he likes to work, and we work together," Soriano said.
