Cubs' Zambrano eyeing eighth straight win

Jun 7, 2008 - 1:07 PM Chicago Cubs (39-23) at LA Dodgers (29-32) 3:55 p.m. EDT

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- Carlos Zambrano goes for his eighth straight win on Saturday when the Chicago Cubs continue a four-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Zambrano (8-1, 2.51 ERA) hasn't lost since April 11, when he surrendered a season-high five earned runs against the Philadelphia Phillies during a 5-3 setback.

Since that start, the 27-year-old righthander has allowed two runs or fewer in seven of his 10 outings. Zambrano has also pitched at least seven innings seven times over that span.

Zambrano allowed just one run and six hits in eight innings, but walked four during his last start against the Dodgers on May 28. He did not factor in the decision, however, as the Cubs rallied for a 2-1 victory in 10 innings.

Derek Lowe (3-5, 4.17) looks to build on the momentum of a strong start in his last outing when he counters for the Dodgers.

Lowe gave up just one run and five hits in eight innings, walking one while striking out three to earn the win during Monday's 8-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies.
