Zambrano gave up 1 run on 4 hits while striking out 8 in 6 innings.

His counterpart, reigning Cy Young Brandon Webb got the win. Webb pitched 7 innings and gave up 1 run on 4 hits while striking out 9.

Arizona took a 1-0 lead in the 4th when Stephen Drew hit a solo home run off Zambrano.

The Cubs tied the game in the 6th when Ryan Theriot produced a 2-out RBI to score Derrek Lee.

Alfonso Soriano was 0-5.
