Zambra-NO Hitter!!! Whoo Hoo!!!

I guess a couple of days off due to Hurricane Ike, plus extra time off for "rotator cuff soreness" issues helped Carlos Zambrano regain his form...and then some.

"Big Z" tossed a no hitter over the Houston Astros at beautiful Miller Park (or Wrigley Field north)!!! It is the first time a Chicago Cub pitched a no-hitter since Milt Pappas' gem against the Padres in 1972. Just like Pappas, his only blemish was one walk (Pappas' was another issue entirely). Unlike Milt, Z struck out 10 batters.

I'll let all the Cubs bloggers do all the reporting. Over here, I'll break out my Zambrano cards to share and celebrate.

A Six Pack of Carlos Zambrano Cards!!! 2000 Topps Traded #T29, 2004 Topps #136, 2005 Topps #258, 2006 Topps #157, 2007 Topps #429, and 2008 Topps #155.

Congratulations Carlos!!! Go Cubs Go!!! (Okay, homerism over!!!)
