"Got 'em!"

The Cubs may have fallen short against the Reds in last night's slugfest, but Zambrano was on target.

"I felt like I was really making all my spots today," said Carlos after the game.

Zambrano was ejected for hitting batter Austin Kearns in the rib cage with a 98mph fast ball. He had given up a 3 run homer to Adam Dunn in the previous at bat and did not want to risk giving up another big hit to a slugger like Kearns.

"It's a shame that I got ejected so soon, I felt so much command out there," the pitcher explained. "I don't think I made even one pitch that was off the mark."

"[The umpire] must have thought it was an accident... I can see why he kicked me out of the game--If a pitcher is wild like that it can be really dangerous."
