Left hamstring strain - Harden pinch ran for him.

CHICAGO -- Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano came out of Sunday's game in the fifth inning because of a strained left hamstring. His status is day-to-day.

Zambrano bunted toward third for a single to lead off the fifth. He sprinted down the line, hit the bag with his left foot and came up limping. Athletic trainer Mark O'Neal went to first to talk to Zambrano, who apparently convinced him he should stay in the game.

O'Neal then talked to Cubs manager Lou Piniella, who had come part of the way out of the dugout. Piniella went back into the dugout, then came out onto the field and went to first to also talk to Zambrano.

The pitcher must have been convincing because he stayed in, at least temporarily. After a bit, Piniella came back onto the field and lifted Zambrano for a pinch-runner, pitcher Rich Harden. Zambrano then slowly walked back to the dugout.

Zambrano had given up two runs on four hits and one walk over five innings before he was pulled.
