4/28/09 Chicago Cubs 11, Arizona Diamondbacks 3

Chase Field, Phoenix, AZ

The Cubs on the offensive we all like to see…

CUBS 11 15 0
D-BACKS 3 10 0

Phenomenal hitting stats:
Soriano 2-4, HR, 2R, 3RBI
Bradley 2-4, R
Hill 3-5, 2R, RBI
Fontenot 1-4, HR, R, RBI
Zambrano 3-4, HR, 2B, 3R, RBI
By the time the 4th inning had ended: ALL of the Cubs in the starting lineup had a hit!!

Zambrano (CHC P, 7IP, 8H, ER, 2BB, 3K) pwned this game; C. Young (ARI CF) was Big Z’s 1200th Strikeout as a Cub, 2nd batter faced in the 2nd inning. In the 7th inning, Zambrano hit his 17th career HR. Zambrano seemed to be up for hitting for the cycle, but it didn’t happen.

Incidentally, the only MLB pitcher to hit for the cycle (pitcher as a position player) was Jimmy Ryan as a Chicago White Stocking in 1888 (they later became the CUBS). What is REALLY kreepy about this is that Soriano had just broken the club record for lead-off home runs…set by Jimmy Ryan!!!
