White Sox win 10th in a row as Cubs feud

CHICAGO — Jake Peavy allowed three hits over seven innings to run his scoreless streak to 21 innings, Carlos Quentin hit his fourth homer in four games, and the White Sox coasted 6-0 Friday, their 10th straight victory, matching their longest winning streak in 34 years.

But after the White Sox scored four in the first, Cubs starter Carlos Zambrano threw a dugout tantrum that resulted in the team suspending him indefinitely after a confrontation with outfielder Derrek Lee (Notebook, 4C).

Cubs manager Lou Piniella said Zambrano was upset after some teammates didn't try to make diving stops, even though the balls were hit hard.

"That's something that can't be tolerated," said Piniella, who sent Milton Bradley home from a game last year for a dugout tantrum.

Piniella called Zambrano's display embarrassing.

Sox manager Ozzie Guillen, who didn't know about the suspension, joked, "Boxing is going so bad, if Don King sees that (Zambrano and Lee) — that's two big boys."

    Thursday was an off-day for the Rays, who are coming off a solid western swing. I assume there was no rest for the tag-team Rays baseball brain trust of Matt Silverman, Erik Neander and Chaim Bloom, whose job it is to improve this team in advance of the trade deadline. They've done a good job …
