Zambrano's Splits Against Righties


Anyone else see this? Elias on ESPN.com wrote this article, and I'll post just the section pertaining to Carlos. Pretty impressive.


• Carlos Zambrano earned his ninth victory of the season, allowing three hits over the first six innings of the Cubs' 9-2 win over the Mets. Zambrano held the Mets' right-handed batters hitless in seven at-bats, lowering to .147 (that's 38 hits in 258 at-bats) the collective batting average of right-handed batters against Zambrano this season.


No major league pitcher in any season from 1990 onward has finished a season limiting right-handed batters to a batting average below .150 in 250-or-more at-bats. The last pitcher to do so was the hard-throwing right-hander Jose DeLeon with the Cardinals in 1989: in a 16-12 season, DeLeon limited righty batters to a .146 average.
