Catching some Zs

Carlos Zambrano faces Barry Zito tonight in San Fran. They have faced each other previously, but it is rare for starting pitchers whose surnames begin with "Z" to square off.

From what I've pieced together, Zito also faced Victor Zambrano, and Carlos and Victor started against each another. The only other instance, according to an old Jayson Stark note, came in 1925 when Boston's Paul Zahniser and Washington's Tom Zachary met.
