Zambrano Leaves in 7th With Hand Cramping
CHICAGO (AP) -- Chicago Cubs starter Carlos Zambrano left Saturday's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates in the seventh inning because of cramping in his right hand.

Zambrano gave up a homer to Garrett Jones to start the seventh and then left the game after getting a 2-2 count on Ronny Cedeno. With the Cubs trailing 3-0, he was replaced by Kerry Wood.

Zambrano, who underwent anger management counseling last season after he was suspended following a dugout tirade on June 25 at U.S. Cellular Field, was 8-0 over his final 11 starts last season. On Saturday, he threw 99 pitches on a cool day and gave up five hits and three runs.
