Red-hot Zambrano goes against division foes

Jul 24, 2007 - 4:09 PM Chicago Cubs (51-46) at St Louis (45-50) 8:10 pm EDT

ST. LOUIS (Ticker) -- Carlos Zambrano will look to continue his recent success when the Chicago Cubs square off against the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday in the opener of a three-game series.

Zambrano (12-7, 3.69 ERA) is 7-2 with a 1.43 ERA and 64 strikeouts in 63 innings over his last nine starts.

The 26-year-old Venezuelan pitched five scoreless innings, yielding just two hits and two walks with three strikeouts in a 12-1 triumph over the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday.

Zambrano has not surrendered a run over his last 16 innings pitched.

He will be opposed by Kip Wells (4-12, 5.75), who is coming off his best start of the season.

The 30-year-old righthander pitched eight scoreless innings, allowing just two hits and two walks with four strikeouts in a 6-0 victory over the Florida Marlins last Wednesday.

This starts an important stretch for the Cardinals, who play the two teams they trail in their quest for the National League Central division title, the Cubs and the Milwaukee Brewers, over their next seven games.
