Zambrano shoves Barrett in dugout after Barrett's two errors

CHICAGO -- Chicago Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano shoved
catcher Michael Barrett as the two were being separated before nearly coming to blows in the
dugout during the middle of the fifth inning of Friday's game
against Atlanta.

The Braves had just scored five runs in the top of the fifth to
increase their lead to 7-1. One run scored on a passed ball and
throwing error by Barrett.

Zambrano was seen pointing at his head and yelling at the
catcher in the dugout before the bottom half, then shoved him.
Neither came out for the sixth.

Scott Eyre relieved Zambrano, who allowed 13 hits. Koyie Hill,
who had just been called up from Triple-A Iowa, replaced Barrett.
