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.

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).

Jonny Gomes’ home run with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning propelled the Cincinnati Reds to their first win of the season, 2-1 over the St. Louis Cardinals, Thursday afternoon in Cincinnati.

Gomes connected on a 2-2 pitch from Jason Motte (0-1), who was brought into the game to face him in the righty-righty matchup.

The Cardinals scored 17 runs in the first two games of the series, but managed only four hits in the final game of the series, including LF Matt Holliday’s first home run.

The Cincinnati Reds blasted the Kansas City Royals on Monday in Cactus League action, 14-5. But the real story was the spring training debut of Cincinnati’s Big Cuban lefty, Aroldis Chapman.

The 6-4 Chapman, three at least two pitches that were clocked at 100 mph, according to scouts who were clocking him, as he struck out three over two scoreless innings in a game at Goodyear, Arizona.

The 22-year-old relieved Bronson Arroyo to start the third inning. He allowed one hit- a single to fellow countryman Brayan Pena and a walk. Throwing 26 pitches, 15 were strikes, as his control improved after a wild beginning. “I’ll take 100 mph with command”, said Reds manager Dusty Baker.

The Buzz surrounding Chapman seems to be legitimate so far. The Reds signed him to a $30-million contract in the offseason’s most surprising deal from a team that usually stays away from big contract signings.

Not to be outdone by the buzz over Chapman’s debut the Reds offense, came alive and had several stars. Drew Stubbs got the scoring underway with a 2-run homer in the 3rd inning to put the Reds up 2-0. Johnny Gomes clubbed a 3-run homer in the 5th inning and went 2-4; Scott Rolen and Jay Bruce each went 2-3 and Chris Dickerson went 2-3 with 2 RBI’s.
