Wild One At Wrigley

When Alfonso Soriano watched his home run sail out of Wrigley Field on Friday night, the Padres took offense.

They reacted in the 4th inning of Saturday's game. Chris Young hit Derrek Lee with a pitch and Lee took exception.

After some words, Lee swung at Young and then Young swung back. Both punches missed, but it was enough to bring both benches onto the field.

It 13 minutes for the teams to return to the bench and for play to resume.

When it did, Carlos Zambrano still had a no-hitter intact. Big Z made an amazing play in the 7th to keep the no-no going.

But in the 8th, Marcus Giles slapped a ball up the middle that went off Zambrano's glove and dropped in for an infield single.

Then in the 9th, Zambrano gave up his 2nd hit. And that was the big one. A solo home run by Russell Branyon that proved to be the only run of the game as the Padres beat the Cubs 1-0.
