Cubs LF Alfonso Soriano has been hot since returning from the DL as he hit 4 HRs last week while scoring 10 runs and swiping 4 bases while hitting .441 with an OBP of .487 last week.

The Rockies LF Matt Halliday also hit 4 HRs while scoring 10 runs with a stolen base, hitting .375 with an OBP of .429, but only had 6 RBIs which means he hit mostly solo shots last week.
