Former Cubs Pitcher Zambrano Apologizes For Venezuela Dustup


CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) -- Former major league pitcher Carlos Zambrano is apologizing for starting a brawl during Venezuela's winter series final.
His apology was carried Monday by El Nacional newspaper.
The Saturday night fight happened during the third game of the series. Zambrano struck pitcher Mayckol Guiape of the rival Caribes de Anzoategui after teammate Ezequiel Carrera of the Navegantes del Magallanes was hit by a pitch.
Zambrano asked forgiveness of Venezuelans and the Caribes organization for the "very embarrassing incident." The Venezuelan League of Professional Baseball is investigating.
When Zambrano was in the majors with the Chicago Cubs he was suspended for 30 days in 2011 after a shouting match with teammate Derrek Lee.
