Cubs Win With Zambrano In Pen!

Bullpen BrianCorrespondent IApril 27, 2010

Carlos Silva allowed three earned runs against Washington Monday night.

That’s the first time Chicago’s staff has allowed more than two earned runs in its last 10 games. For Real Yo!

After the Brewers lambasted Pittsburgh 20-0 last week…the Cubs shut down Milwaukee over the weekend…allowing just four total runs in a three-game sweep.

Monday, the Brewers wasted Pittsburgh again 17-3. Some evidence of just how talented the Cubs’ starting staff is–and, of course, how weak the Pirates’ rotation is too!

Nonetheless, when you have a rotation that’s third in the league in QS (14)…and twice turns over without allowing more than two earned runs…you can afford sending an arm like Zambrano’s to the pen.

And thus far the Big Z experiment is working! The Cubs lineup has more confidence with Zambrano setting up Marmol…Carlos is pitching well too…and not surprisingly, the club is back at .500 baseball.

Moving Zambrano to the pen kept the wheels from falling off in April..is helping revive the hurler’s career…and keeps Chicago on the heels of St. Louis.

So as long as this rotation keeps plugging away, so too will Zambrano and the Cubs.
