Carlos Zambrano threw a two-hitter Friday and the Chicago Cubs damaged San Francisco's playoffs hopes with a 2-0 win over the Giants.

Jeff Baker hit a two-run homer with two out in the ninth inning Thursday to give the Chicago Cubs a 3-2 victory over San Francisco.

Chicago Cubs outfielder Milton Bradley apologized Wednesday for comments he made last week that resulted in his suspension for the remainder of the season. Bradley, who signed a three-year, $30 million contract last winter, made a series of disparaging remarks about the Cubs in an interview published in the Daily Herald of Arlington Heights, Ill. You understand why they haven't won here in 100 years, Bradley was quoted as saying. It's just not a positive environment. I need a stable,...

It may take several years but the Internal Revenue Service will probably challenge the Tribune Co.'s sale of the Chicago Cubs, a tax expert says. Robert Willens, who runs a consulting firm and publishes a tax newsletter, says the sale of the National League baseball team to the Ricketts family was set up as a leveraged partnership with Tribune keeping a 5 percent stake, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Wednesday.
