Zambrano Dominant as Cubs Beat Brewers
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Carlos Zambrano pitched three-hit ball into the ninth inning and drove in a run, leading the Chicago Cubs to a 4-0 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night.

Zambrano (8-6) won his fifth straight decision since returning to the rotation Aug. 9 after serving a suspension for a dugout outburst in June. He pitched three games out of the bullpen before resuming his starting duties. Zambrano tied a season high with nine strikeouts and walked three in 8 2-3 innings. The right-hander has 32 strikeouts and 10 walks in his last four starts.

He was in control the whole game and retired 13 straight batters until Ryan Braun lined a single to left field with two outs in the ninth inning.
