compiled by the megasportsnews.com staff

CHICAGO CUBS 4    CINCINNATI  REDS  2


Carlos Zambrano Cubs (mlb)

Carlos Zambrano recovered from his awful opening day start by pitching seven solid innings, and pinch-hitter Jeff Baker hit a tie-breaking homer in the eighth inning for the Chicago Cubs in Cincinnati.

Zambrano (1-1) managed only four outs during the Cubs’ 16-5 blasting in Atlanta. He held the Reds to six hits, including Brandon Phillips homer and struck out nine.

Baker hit his solo shot off left-hander Arthur Rhodes (0-1),  Chicago’s third homer of the game. Kosuke Fukudome and Alfonso Soriano also connected off Aaron Harang.

Ryan Howard, Shane Victorino and Jayson Werth drove in three runs apiece, and Philadelphia sent winless Houston to its worst start in 27 years at 0-5. The game was played in Houston.

The Phillies finished with 11 hits and have reached double digits in their first five games for the first time since 1926. Philadelphia leads the majors with 41 runs.

Ryan Howard Phiilies (mlb)

Jamie Moyer, major league baseball’s oldest player at 47, became the sixth-oldest pitcher to appear in a game and the eighth to start one in four decades. He allowed five runs and nine hits in six innings.

Jason Michaels and Hunter Pence homered off Moyer for the Astros, who are 0-5 for the first time since the 1983 team lost its first nine games.

Moyer left with the Phillies trailing 5-4, but they regained the lead in the seventh on Howard’s two-run shot off Brandon Lyon (0-1).
