Carlos Zambrano Sharp Again; But Cubs Bats Quiet in 4-0 Loss to Colorado Rockies – Wrigley Field West Mesa Arizona 3/8/11

Posted on 08 March 2011 by Lou

Carlos Zambrano continues to impress with a solid spring thus far.  Zambrano pitched 3 innings against the Colorado Rockies, giving up just 1 ER on 5 hits and no walks.  He struck out 1, but you have to love the fact that his control has been outstanding this spring.  In 3 starts, Zambrano has put together an exciting 1.13 ERA.

Sean Marshall tossed a scoreless inning in relief and lowered his spring ERA to 2.70.

In a bid to make the opening day roster, Braden Looper was roughed up for 3 runs on a 3-run home run in the 7th inning.  Looper now has a 7.20 spring ERA.

The Cubs bats were extremely quiet in the loss.  The Cubs managed just 5 hits and no runs against 5 Rockies pitchers.  Blake DeWitt, Starlin Castro and Geovany Soto each had hits.
