Zambrano leads Cubs over Reds

CINCINNATI (AP) - Carlos Zambrano recovered from his horrific opening day start by pitching seven solid innings, and pinch-hitter Jeff Baker hit a tiebreaking homer in the eighth inning Saturday, sending the Chicago Cubs to a 4-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.

Zambrano (1-1) managed only four outs during the Cubs' 16-5 opening-day drubbing in Atlanta. He held the Reds to six hits, including Brandon Phillips' homer, and struck out nine.

Carlos Marmol fanned the last three batters for his second save in as many chances.

Baker hit his solo shot off left-hander Arthur Rhodes (0-1), Chicago's third homer of the game.

Kosuke Fukudome and Alfonso Soriano also connected off Aaron Harang.
