Chicago Cubs vs. Pittsburgh, 3 September 2005

Carlos Zambrano (11-5, 3.04) vs. Dave Williams (10-10, 4.21), 12:35 PM. Beating the Bucs on July 17 seemed to light a fire under Zambrano; beginning with that game, he has lopped nearly a run off his ERA, striking out ten or more batters in three starts since then. For all the talented pitchers the Cubs have, he has quietly been their best over the past two years. Williams is coming off two mediocre starts against St. Louis and Philadelphia.
