Morning Box Score: Zambrano Pitches Like He's In AAA, Santos Blows Sure Sox Win

By Chuck Sudo in News on Jun 11, 2011 2:00PM

Phillies 7, Cubs 5

Last night Carlos Zambrano had no one to blame but himself. With a bullpen that was gassed from the night before, Zambrano struggled through 6-1/3 innings, threw 128 pitches, earned his 1,500 strikeout and gave up seven runs, including a Placido Polanco grand slam. The Cubs stormed back with five runs in their half of the 7th inning, but Phillies ace Roy Halladay had this game under control.

A's 7, White Sox 5

Riding a 10-game winning streak, the A's were due for a win. We just didn't expect it to be with two outs in their half of the ninth. Sergio Santos turned into butter after getting the first two outs and going 0-2 against free-swinging Josh Willingham. Santos wound up walking Willingham and the A's were off to the races. A four-run rally was capped by a bases clearing, three-run double by Scott Sizemore. Paul Konerko continued his hot streat with a two-run home run.
