Zambrano Named Pitcher of the Month

Congrats to Carlos for being named the Pitcher of the month for July. He has done a very nice job turning his season around after a very shaky start.


Quote:
CHICAGO -- Carlos Zambrano is making a strong push for the Cy Young Award he once promised he'd win.
A torrid July run cemented him among the game's top pitchers and earned him the National League Pitcher of the Month.

"He's in a zone," said teammate Derrek Lee, after Zambrano held the Reds scoreless for his Major League-leading 14th win. "When you score two runs in the first with Z on the mound, you feel pretty good about yourself. He's pitching great. Just keep him healthy and he'll carry us the rest of the way."

Zambrano's July numbers included a 1.38 ERA, tops in the Majors, and five wins, which tied him for the National League's best. He held three teams scoreless in six July starts and his 34 strikeouts during the month were second behind Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum.

Zambrano didn't allow more than five hits in any of the six starts, and surrendered just one homer.

He is two wins shy of matching a career-high 16 wins. Since June 6, he is 9-2 with a 1.41 ERA and 77 strikeouts.

"I think this is the best stretch I've ever had in my career," Zambrano said. "I feel good right now. Ever since I lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates in the last game of the first half, I feel comfortable on the mound, I feel confident. Hopefully I can keep doing a good job for my team."

Teammate Ted Lilly is doing his part, having made a push for Zambrano's award by matching his 5-1 record in July and posting a 2.52 ERA. Their combined efforts had the Cubs tied with Milwaukee atop the NL Central as of Thursday.

Other pitchers receiving votes this month were Lincecum (4-0, 1.62 ERA, 39 SO); Lilly (5-1, 2.52 ERA, 24 SO); Colorado's Aaron Cook (4-1, 2.68 ERA, 21 SO); Washington's Chad Cordero (9 SV, 1.29 ERA, 8 SO); and Billy Wagner (8 SV, 0.00 ERA) of the New York Mets.

Zambrano will receive a Sharp AQUOS full HD LCD-TV and a trophy as part of his award.

He may add more hardware once the season is finished.

"Any time I can do something for myself -- pitching, running, fielding, kicking the ball, whatever -- it's good for me," He said. "I have to be able to use what God gave me and use the ability."

It is truly amazing that Z has turned it around like THIS! He could be the NL Cy Young, no Cubs fans thought he had a shot after that start in April and May. I went the the Cubs @ Brewers game on June 6, the first start after the Barret fight. That was truthfully a different Zambrano. Pie also hit a 3-run shot to left and Fielder pulled a homer, but that game was all about Zambrano. I am still amazed at the loud booing Zambrano got after the first inning. The loudest booing I've ever heard. I think the Mets will have a hard day!

For only four months out of the season. He'll get this label from me when he can get this award in April.

Knew it was inevitable for him to win that award for the month of July... 1.38 -- wow... I bet opposing batters are dumbfounded at the plate right now facing Big Z.

Keep it up... let's win this damn division... GO ZAMBRANO!!!

I agree. Zambrano was pathetic. I can't believe he can't manage to pitch 8 innings every start. And giving up those 2 hits, trade the worthless pitcher. I'm not even going to mention the fact that he gave up 1 run, because that will really make me furious.

Excuse me sir, are you being sarcastic?
