Five different players plated a run to back six strong innings from Carlos Zambrano as the Cubs clipped the Pirates, 5-3, on Monday at PNC Park. Zambrano fanned five, while allowing just one run on seven hits to improve to 8-and-6 on the season. Carlos Marmol worked a 1-2-3 ninth to nail down his 21st save. Jeff Baker, Geovany Soto, Alfonso Soriano, Carlos Pena and Reed Johnson each knocked in a run for the Northsiders, who snapped a five-game slide. Former Cubs first baseman Derrek Lee, who was just acquired by Pittsburgh over the weekend, clubbed a solo home run in the fourth and added a two-run shot in the eighth in his first game with his new team. Randy Wells will toe the rubber opposite Kevin Correia in tonight's second installment.
