As Carlos Zambrano and the Cubs continue to soar, the Cardinals fly south. Big Z keeps rolling as he improves to 6-0 with a 1.59 e.r.a. in his last 7 starts. The Cubs’ pitcher continues to silence critics with his pitching prowess. Big Z is all business these days and has returned to form as he quietly shuts down opponents.
The current road trip has proven to be a great turnaround as the Cubs, particularly, the pitching staff, has played like playoff contenders. The Cubs are now 14-7 under Mike Quade. That’s a .667 winning per centage!
The Cubs’ sweep of the Cardinals was sweet. Hopefully, the Cubs will continue the success as the season winds down. Let’s finish on a positive note as we look ahead to next year.
