That sure was a much needed win as the Cubs now are assured of going home in first place. Zambrano looked as good as ever and the bullpen, minus a forgivable home run to Albert Pujols, was lights out.
Lou had earlier mentioned wanting to go with two lefties this series as the Cardinals had only managed something-like four wins against southpaws. Their overall splits though don't bear out much of an advantage, a collective .772 OPS vs righties and .776 vs lefties. Lou might be outhinking himself on this one.
