Former Cub Carlos Zambrano has lost his cool, again.

Saturday night during Game 3 of the Venezuelan Winter League championship, Zambrano was in the middle of a brawl between the Navegantes del Magallanes and Caribes de Anzoátegui.

It all started when Zambrano’s teammate, Robinson Chiniros hit his second home run, to give Magallanes a 6-1 lead. The next batter, Ezequiel Carrera, showed bunt on a 1-1 pitch, which Caribes pitcher Mayckol Guaipe didn’t care for. So on the next pitch, Guaipe plunked Chiniros and both benches cleared.

Zambrano lead the charge out of the dugout and started swinging wildly — and for the most part, missed badly.

Here’s the full video of the game, but the good stuff starts at the 2:14:00 mark.
