EARLIER:

Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano lashed out at his teammates after St. Louis slugger Albert Pujols hit his second consecutive walk-off home run to beat Chicago on Sunday.

Bruce Levine of ESPNChicago.com reported that Zambrano blamed relief pitcher Carlos Marmol for allowing the game-tying double from Ryan Theriot in the ninth inning.

"The problem wasn't Pujols. The problem was [Theriot's] at-bat," he said. "We should have known better than this. We are playing like a Triple-A team. This is embarrassing. Embarrassing for the team and the owners. Embarrassing for the fans. Embarrassing, that's the word for this team."

According to the report, Zambrano was yelling about Theriot's at-bat after "turning in the direction of Marmol's then-vacated locker."

"We should play better here," the 30-year-old said. "We stink. That's all I've got to say."

Marmol told reporters that he didn't know Zambrano had blamed him.
