Zambrano dialed in

This is as good as I have ever seen him. He has faced the minimum through three, with four Ks. Gonzo got him for a one-out single in the second, but that was quickly erased on Wilson Betemit’s GIDP. Aramis Ramirez and Mark DeRosa got Hendrickson for back-to-back homers in the second, first time the Cubs have done that this year. But Gonzo might have saved another run later in that inning. With Matt Murton on second and one out, Cesar Izturis hit a blooper to left that Gonzo couldn’t get to, but Gonzo faked having a bead on it, even sticking his glove up to catch it just before it landed about five feet in front of him. Murton was deked just long enough that he held up slightly between second and third, which prevented him from scoring, and Hendrickson then got out of the inning without further damage. But Henry Blanco just singled to drive in Murton, padding the Cubs’ lead. Cubs 3, Dodgers 0, top 4
