|Cubs Turn Tables on Angels; Win Big
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Carlos Zambrano pitched seven strong innings, Derrek Lee drove in a season-high four runs and Geovany Soto homered Sunday to lead the Chicago Cubs to a 12-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels.
It was quite a turnaround for the Cubs, who had dropped six of nine and were coming off a 12-0 loss that left fans peppering them with boos.
The Cubs matched a season-high with 18 hits after collecting two on Saturday, and they took advantage of some defensive lapses, scoring two runs in each of the first two innings and chasing Joe Saunders (5-8) in a four-run third that made it 8-0.
Zambrano (3-5) had one of his better outings this season.
