|Zito Throws Gem for Win 150 as Giants Nip Cubs 2-0
|SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Barry Zito pitched 8 1-3 scoreless innings for his 150th career win and Joaquin Arias snapped an 18 at-bat hitless stretch with an RBI single that led the San Francisco Giants to a 2-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Sunday.
Angel Pagan scored the game's first run after doubling to set a Giants record by extending his home hitting streak to 27 games.
Zito (5-2) was rarely threatened by the struggling Cubs, allowing just four hits and two walks before leaving to a standing ovation after a one-walk to Darwin Barney in the ninth. Sergio Romo finished for his second save.
The Cubs also lost 10 straight road games for their longest skid away from Wrigley Field since dropping 10 in a row in September 2000.
