Kimm wins his debut with Cubs
ATLANTA -- If Don Baylor had gotten pitching like this, he might still have a job.
Carlos Zambrano pitched five innings of two-hit ball and Moises Alou hit two homers as the Cubs beat the Atlanta Braves 7-3 Saturday night in Bruce Kimm's first game as Chicago's interim manager.
Sammy Sosa missed his second straight game because of a family emergency, and he's not expected back for today's series finale.
Kimm, a former major league catcher, spent 6 1/2 seasons managing in the minors before replacing Baylor. In his first game, Kimm put second baseman Mark Bellhorn in the leadoff spot and the move paid off immediately. Bellhorn hit a solo homer and also walked in the first to start a three-run rally.
Corey Patterson, who normally bats first, originally was dropped to No. 6 in the order but was scratched because of a sore foot, and Roosevelt Brown started in his place.
Baylor was fired Friday, and bench coach Rene Lachemann ran the team in Friday night's 4-3 loss.
