Carlos Zambrano Meltdown: Bumps Umpire, Busts Gatorade Machine
Chicago Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano will likely face suspension after being ejected from last night's game for bumping into plate umpire Mark Carlson.
Zambrano thought he had tagged Pittsburgh's Nyjer Morgan at home plate, but Carlson said the runner was safe. Zambrano then freaked out, yelling and bumping into Carlson.
After being ejected, Carlos Zambrano stormed into the dugout and smashed a Gatorade dispenser with a baseball bat. Eventually, Cubs pitching coach Larry Rothschild managed to calm him down.
This has been a bad week for Gatordade dispensers at Wrigley Field. A few days ago, Cubs pitcher Ryan Dempster smashed the drink dispenser in the dugout.
