MILWAUKEE (AP) -Carlos Zambrano controlled his temper and his pitches, and the Chicago Cubs overcame Prince Fielder's 21st home run to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 6-2 Wednesday.
Zambrano (6-5) melted down in his last start, giving up a career-high 13 hits Friday against Atlanta and getting into a dugout skirmish with catcher Michael Barrett. The hostilities continued in the clubhouse, and Barrett sustained a cut lip and went to a hospital for stitches.
Barrett got the day off after playing Tuesday night and backup Koyie Hill caught.
Felix Pie, in his second stint with Chicago, hit a three-run homer in the second inning as the Cubs roughed up Jeff Suppan (7-6). Pie also doubled and scored in the first, and had another hit.
Marlins 7, Braves 4
ATLANTA (AP) - Aaron Boone homered again, hitting a two-run shot, and the Marlins held off the Braves.
Florida took three of four in the series, costing the Braves a chance to climb closer to first-place New York in the NL East. Atlanta has lost four of five.
The Marlins jumped on Kyle Davies (3-4) right away. Alfredo Amezaga and Dan Uggla started the game with singles and Josh Willingham drove them both home with a double to the gap in left-center.
Florida made it 5-0 in the third. Uggla led off with a double, stole third and wound up scoring on Jeremy Hermida's sacrifice fly.
Justin Miller (1-0) worked 1 2-3 scoreless innings for the win, which gave Florida only its second series victory in Atlanta since 2002.
