PHOENIX (AP) - Geovany Soto hit a grand slam and a solo shot, and Carlos Zambrano pitched effectively into the fourth inning Wednesday, helping the Chicago Cubs to a 8-8 tie with the Oakland Athletics.

Zambrano was scheduled to pitch three innings because he had already built up endurance for the season. He went 3 1-3 innings,
giving up two hits and a run.

Zambrano will be facing the Astros for the first time since he pitched a no-hitter against them in Milwaukee.

A's manager Bob Geren finally announced the team's rotation after the game.

Dallas Braden, who gave up six runs in five innings, will be the opening day starter, as expected. He'll be followed by Trevor Cahill, Dana Eveland, Brett Anderson and Josh Outman.
