CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano has been suspended for six games for his tirade this week during a game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The Cubs ace threw a baseball into left field and slammed his
glove against the dugout fence after he was ejected Wednesday with Chicago leading 2-1 in the seventh inning. The Cubs went on to win 5-2.

With Nyjer Morgan at third, Zambrano's wild pitch just got away
from catcher Geovany Soto. Zambrano covered the plate for Soto's throw, Morgan slid and umpire Mark Carlson ruled him safe.

Zambrano jumped up and argued and was ejected after he appeared to nudge Carlson. Zambrano then pointed in Carlson's face and gave him the ejection sign.
