'Gor' Cubs' inconvenient truth
Gorzelanny baffles Cubs
Tom Gorzelanny, who won his first Major League game in his last start, allowed two hits in eight shutout innings and set a career high with seven Ks. Meanwhile, Xavier Nady went 4-for-5 with three doubles, two RBIs and two runs, while Jose Castillo and Ronny Paulino added homers.

Series at a glance:
Big Z feels sting of defeat
It had to end sometime, but unfortunately for the Cubs, Carlos Zambrano lost for the first time in 10 decisions after a shutout against the Pirates. Zambrano allowed five runs on nine hits while striking out six in six innings, and Chicago had no answers for young Tom Gorzelanny.
