Rapid Reaction: Cubs 1, Reds 0

CHICAGO – The Chicago Cubs beat the Cincinnati Reds 1-0 on Monday night. Here’s a quick look at the game. How it happened: Anthony Rizzo hit a walk-off home run off Pedro Villarreal in the ninth inning on a chilly night during which neither team mustered offense. Rizzo led off the frame with his 31st of the season to center field, then was mobbed by teammates at home plate. Travis Wood pitched six scoreless innings, giving up just three hits, and the bullpen finished the shutout.

Carlos Zambrano still loves Chicago, fans

CHICAGO -- Looking happy and refreshed, former Chicago Cubs controversial pitcher Carlos Zambrano made an appearance at Wrigley Field on Friday, one day before participating in a charity softball event. "Every time I come to Chicago it's good to be here and feel the atmosphere of baseball," a smiling Zambrano said before the Cubs played the Pittsburgh Pirates. Zambrano was a polarizing figure during his 11 years in Chicago from 2001-2011 as his tenure ended after former general manager Jim Hendry suspended him after a meltdown in Atlanta when he told Cubs coaches he was retiring.
