* FridgeLogic: Ask yourself why Strange felt it was necessary to channel Zom to beat Hulk when Strange on his own is capable of fighting beings that FAR outclass Hulk in every way.
** FridgeBrilliance: There was no other way to convincingly have Strange lose than to have him distracted with something even worse than Hulk during the fight (not to suggest that Strange's defeat was convincing, just more convincing than having Hulk win on his own merits). Still doesn't explain how he allowed himself to be put into a situation where summoning Zom seemed like a good idea, but uhh...what are you gonna do?
*** Outside of Hulk's supporting cast/family Strange has the most insight of any other hero on the nature of Hulk and Banner, having spent so much time with him on the Defenders. He let his guard down when Hulk turned back into Banner because he could not conceive that Banner was working with Hulk. Essentially Hulk beat Strange the same way Strange tends to beat many of his godlike multiverse-threatening opponents. Hulk tricked Strange.
The shattered hands, and disbelief over what happened could presumably panic Strange enough to make a rash decision like summoning Zom (Without his hands Strange couldn't pull off his normal spells, and his mind was too clouded by pain/confusion to really think things through.) Lastly, Strange only channeled some of Zom's power, and in a purely physical manner.

** It is the strongest the Hulk had ever been at that time, and the Hulk lacks any upper boundary to his strength. Before, he was always a raging monster. In "World War Hulk", he was so angry that his anger was calm. He beat Black Bolt, Stark, and every other heavy-hitter in the Marvel Universe that could be thrown at him outside of Sentry. Plus, dark magic makes the Hulk stronger just as much as radiation does, so Strange would need to bring the heaviest-hitting magics he could without making the Hulk even stronger.

*** To answer both issues, Strange has been known to overreact and turn to black magic in the past. It's possible he just panicked. Given the Hulk was his friend, it's quite possible he wasn't thinking properly.

** He was convinced the GodzillaThreshold had been crossed. As far as he knew, Hulk was going to kill the captured Illuminati (Reed, Tony, and Black Bolt) unless Strange could somehow take him down. He couldn't heal his hands in time, so he couldn't use any of his spells. Zom was the biggest weapon he could use at the moment, so he went for it. (And yes, he probably was in a lot of pain and not thinking too clearly).
