Chipper JonesBy C. Trent Rosecrans

Chipper Jones wasn't surprised Friday night when Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano threw at him following Dan Uggla's second home run of the game.

"There's no hard feelings," Jones told Carroll Rogers of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "Carlos has a tendency to runs  little hot and you can tell that he was frustrated. I sort of had an inkling that it was coming."

Zambrano was ejected immediately after his third pitch of the at-bat nearly hit Jones. Cubs general manager Jim Hendry apologized to Jones and admonished his pitcher after the team put him on the disqualified list. Jones said he appreciated the apology.

"I like Carlos. I've always liked Carlos," Jones said. "He's an intense competitor and he's one of those guys that comes out of the bullpen breathing fire and that's what you like if he's on your club. Unfortunately sometimes it works against him and last night was another in a long line of situations where it got away from him."
