Carlos Zambrano has been unstoppable since rejoining the Cubs’ starting rotation.  Big Z has been back on track and is ready to roll as the Cubs’ look to sweep St. Louis.  The Cardinals will counter with Chris Carpenter in the series finale.  The Cards are 7 games back and find themselves slipping from playoff contention.
