Tuesday Another game, another ejection for Carlos Zambrano. Zambrano was tossed for the second time in five starts in the fifth inning of the Cubs' 11-9 loss to Cincinnati. After giving up a home run to the Reds' Adam Dunn, Zambrano plunked the next batter, Austin Kearns, with his first pitch. As is the standard operating procedure after such situations, both the pitcher and manager Dusty Baker denied Kearns was hit on purpose. But Baker conceded the "timing looked bad."
