Carlos Zambrano picked up his first win of the year six weeks into the baseball season as the Cubs broke their 8-game losing streak last night, whupping the Giants 8-1. Their offense last night equalled the team’s scoring output for their previous six games.
The Cubs record right now is 15-18. I shudder to think where they’d be without the pitching of Greg Maddux (5-2) and rookie Sean Marshall (a surprising 2-0). Prior, Wood, and Lee can’t get back fast enough.
