Carlos Zambrano matched his career-high with seven walks in his first start since a June 25 dugout blowup and ensuing banishment, and his short-handed Chicago Cubs lost to the San Francisco Giants 4-3 in 11 innings Monday night long after he left the game.

Pat Burrell hit a game-ending sacrifice fly off loser Marcos Mateo (0-1), who made his major league debut after being called up earlier in the day.

Edgar Renteria led off the 11th with a single and Aubrey Huff's single moved him to third. Mateo then intentionally walked standout rookie Buster Posey to bring up Burrell.

Chris Ray (5-0) recorded the final out of the 11th for the win.
