Cubs Lose to Indians
GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) -- Carlos Zambrano kept his composure despite some shoddy fielding behind him in his final spring tuneup for the Chicago Cubs, a 4-3 loss to the Cleveland Indians on Monday.

Chicago scored twice in the ninth off closer Chris Perez, who left after it looked as if he became ill. Vinnie Pestano hit a batter, then got the final out.

Zambrano walked five over five innings, yielding four runs. One was unearned as middle infielders Starlin Castro and Darwin Barney kicked the ball around a bit.

Zambrano went 8-0 with a 1.41 ERA in his final 11 outings in 2010 after a blowup over poor defensive support.

Cleveland starter Carlos Carrasco allowed one run and three hits in six innings.
