Carlos Zambrano was screaming as he stormed through the dugout in a full-fledged tantrum that was all too familiar for the Chicago Cubs.

In a flash, he was being separated from Derrek Lee. Then, he was being sent home, and it's anybody's guess when he'll be back.

Zambrano was given an indefinite suspension from the Cubs after a wild meltdown that stole the spotlight Friday, when the Chicago White Sox beat their crosstown rivals, 6-0, for their 10th straight win.

Jake Peavy (7-5) allowed three hits in seven innings to run his scoreless streak to 21 innings, Carlos Quentin hit his fourth homer in four games, and the White Sox matched their longest winning streak in 34 years.

But all that was overshadowed by the confrontation in the visitor's dugout following the White Sox's four-run first inning.

"That's something that can't be tolerated," said manager Lou Piniella, who sent Milton Bradley home from a game at U.S. Cellular Field last year for a dugout tantrum.

Zambrano (3-6) screamed as he walked down the dugout steps past Lee and stormed toward the other end after the first inning.

Valentine to Florida on hold

Bobby Valentine still may be coming to the Florida Marlins, though just not as quickly as first envisioned.

A person familiar with the Marlins' managerial search said that a scheduled interview with Valentine has been put on hold, yet he remains a top candidate for the job.

A reason for the slowdown could be because the Marlins play a three-game series in Puerto Rico starting Monday. Interim manager Edwin Rodriguez is a native of Puerto Rico.

Phillies 9, Blue Jays 0

Roy Halladay (9-6) tossed seven scoreless innings in his first start against his former team for "visiting" Philadelphia in a road game at their own ballpark. The series was moved from Toronto because of the G20 Summit. But the Blue Jays wore white and batted second.
