CHICAGO (AP) -Chicago Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano shoved catcher Michael Barrett as the two were being separated in the dugout during the middle of the fifth inning of Friday's game against Atlanta.
The Braves had just scored five runs in the top of the fifth to increase their lead to 7-1. One run scored on a passed ball and throwing error by Barrett.
Zambrano was seen pointing at his head and yelling at the catcher in the dugout before the bottom half, then shoved him. Neither came out for the sixth.
Scott Eyre relieved Zambrano, who allowed 13 hits. Koyie Hill, who had just been called up from Triple-A Iowa, replaced Barrett.
