A simple quark-antiquark recombination model is used to predict some features of two-particle inclusive cross sections in the fragmentation region in soft hadronic processes. We compare π+ cross sections observed at Feynman xb in association with various "trigger" particles (at xa) and discuss the dependence of the cross sections on an approximate scaling variable xb=xb(1-xa). Data from 360-GeV/c π-p interactions are consistent with our predictions.
