Lines of the night
Carlos Zambrano pitched an eight-inning gem for the Cubs on Tuesday night against the Phillies at Citizens Bandbox Park.
Closer Ryan Dempster, though, nearly wasted Zambrano’s effort. Check out their lines.
Zambrano was awesome, throwing 68 of his 104 pitches for strikes. Dempster struggled with his command, though, throwing 21 balls in 41 pitches. He walked the bases loaded, then walked Ryan Howard to force in a run. But he rebounded by striking out the next two batters. For his efforts, Dempster picks up his 15th save.
