Zambrano made it through the first inning and got two outs in the second before giving up a double to Matt Holliday and walking J.D. Closser. He walked off the mound after facing Closser, and was met by catcher Jason Phillips and the Mets trainer near the third-base line.

Zambrano talked with the trainer for a few seconds, then walked into the dugout. He sat with his head down for a few seconds before heading into the clubhouse.

The Mets said he is questionable for his next start, Sunday against San Francisco.

Zambrano won his first two starts for New York, allowing four earned runs over 14 innings since being acquired from Tampa Bay on July 30.
