CHICAGO (AP) - Alfonso Soriano is out of the Chicago Cubs' lineup so the team decided to send the left fielder for an MRI on his sore left knee a couple days earlier than scheduled.

Soriano was going to wait until Monday to have the test but manager Lou Piniella said there was no sense in waiting since the slugger wasn't going to play against the New York Mets on Saturday.

Soriano hit a three-run shot Friday for his first homer since July 29, lifting the Cubs to a 5-2 victory over the Mets. After the game, Soriano said the pain in his knee had worsened.

Soriano, who signed an eight-year, $136 million deal before the 2007 season, is batting .243 this year. Friday's homer gave him at least 20 in eight straight seasons.
