Chicago,IL--The Chicago Cubs threw no punches. Manager Lou
Piniella kicked dirt and threw his cap, though.
And it was more of the same for the Cubs -- this time a 5-3 loss
to the Atlanta Braves on Saturday for Chicago's sixth straight

One day after Carlos Zambrano and Michael Barrett fought,
Piniella got ejected after Angel Pagan got caught stealing third
base in the eighth inning.

Yunel Escobar doubled in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning
and Andruw Jones led off the ninth with a homer to lead Atlanta
over the reeling Cubs.

Escobar doubled to left off reliever Will Ohman (0-3) with two
outs to drive in Scott Thorman and give Atlanta a 4-3 lead. It was
the second hit for Escobar, who was called up to replace the
injured Chipper Jones.
