Zambrano wins, but Nomar hurt. That was the subtext of Wednesday night's game in St. Louis. The Cubs held on to win 3-1. Zambrano pitched 8 2/3 innings, gave up 5 hits and only 1 run, before leaving with a blood blister on his right index finger. The real tragedy however, happened in the top of the 3rd inning. Nomar Garciaparra made contact, took two steps out of the box, and collapsed in a screaming fit of leg-holding. Not good. When asked if Nomar would be on the DL, manager Dusty Baker sighed deeply, and said "most definitely." The MRI is scheduled for today, as Chicago holds its collective breath.

The Brewers lost again last night, 1-6 in Houston to fall to 5-9. Roy Oswalt pitched a CG, 4-hitter, with 8 K's to dominate the Brewers. Ben Sheets felt ill and struggled from the start, giving up back-to-back HR's to Adam Everett and Craig Biggio in the 1st inning.
