Big Z's blowup starts wild interleague weekend

Another really interesting slate of interleague games set for this weekend and we've already had a big story develop as the White Sox rolled to their 10th straight win -- their longest run since 1976 -- with today's 6-0 whitewash over the Cubs. The South Siders scored four runs in the first off Carlos Zambrano, who might have pitched his last inning for the Cubs after blowing up in the dugout at teammate Derrek Lee.

Check out the video. Ugly stuff. Zambrano has immediately been suspended by the Cubs. Richly deserved.

In other matchups this weekend:

---The Yankees face old manager Joe Torre for the first time in a three-game set in Los Angeles. Torre knew this weekend was coming.

---Roy Halladay pitches against his old team for the first time as the Phillies "travel" to their home park to meet the Blue Jays in the set moved from the Rogers Centre because of the G-20 summit. What a shame. Would have easily been a 40,000-plus crowd and an amazing scene tonight in Toronto.

---The Twins are at Citi Field to meet the Mets, with Johan Santana starting tomorrow. Ex-Bisons Jesus Feliciano, who went 3 for 5 last night, and Josh Thole are in tonight's lineup.

---Arizona is at Tampa Bay in the first family reunion of Justin and B.J. Upton.

---Tim Wakefield is on the mound as the Red Sox open a series in San Francisco.
