Very cool that Carlos Zambrano let Kosuke Fukudome pick out the pre-game clubhouse music Saturday.
The Fuk went with the Japanese band Funky Monkey Babys…and no, I’ve never heard of them, either.
Good rebound outing for Zambrano, too. He got down early, 3-0, but settled down lasting seven innings. You bank on that from your No.1…especially given the weak middle relief.
Zambrano’s simply owned the Reds lately…7-1 in his last eight starts…going at least seven innings in each outing.
His career numbers are solid against Cincinnati, as well…30 starts–16 wins…both career-high marks against any opponent.
But as always, the question remains…will Zambrano pitch this well consistently…even when he’s not facing Cincinnati?
