Long Ball Propels Cubs To Victory
Due to the Blackhawks victory, this will be a very brief recap.
Carlos Zambrano took the mound in his 2nd start since returning from the rotation. He allowed 3 runs in only 5 innings but earned his 2nd win of the season (2-4). He walked 5 and only struck out 2.
Chicago hit 5 homeruns including number 300 by Derrek Lee. Marlon Byrd and Geovany Soto both went deep twice and led the Cubs to the 9-4 victory over Randy Wolf and the Brewers.
Also, Aramis Ramirez was put on the disabled list while Chad Tracy was recalled to take his place. Tracy will platoon with Jeff Baker at 3rd base.
