Carlos Zambrano made his setup man debut last night and the results were mixed. He came in with runners on first and third with 2 outs in the 7th and induced a weak grounder from Rickie Weeks to end the inning.
Sent back out for the 8th inning, things got a little more hairy as Zambrano gave up 2 hits, 1 walk and a run before retiring the side.
Not perfect, but definitely better than what we've seen from the setup men so far this season. Also, we should remember that this is a Brewers team that just scored 36 runs in a 3 game series against the Pirates, including 20 in one game.
Zambrano was credited with a Hold and best of all the Cubs won the game, thanks largely to Ted Lilly's 6 shutout innings in his first game back from injury.
The Cubs have looked sharp in the first 2 games since the Zambrano announcement, beating the Brewers 7-1 and 5-1. They go for the sweep today and are off to a good start, leading 5-0 after 2 innings.
