Cubs 7, Cardinals 3
Carlos Zambrano reacts after hitting a solo homer in the fourth inning. (AP)
Carlos Zambrano stifled the Cards outside of a three-run third, and his homer -- his third of the year and 19th of his career -- propelled him to his first "W" since June 5. Micah Hoffpauir hit a three-run homer, and the Cubs used a pair of errors to blow things open in the seventh.
