CINCINNATI (AP) -- Reds manager Dusty Baker says he doesn't understand why Cubs pitcher Matt Garza was incensed by Johnny Cueto's pitch high over David DeJesus' head.

Baker said Monday that the Cincinnati ace "couldn't have hit Wilt Chamberlain with that pitch." Both dugouts were warned after the play in the sixth inning Sunday of the Cubs' 5-4, 10-inning win. An angry Garza called Cueto "immature" after the game.

Baker says: "I just wish they'd put them in a room and let them box and it would be over with - like hockey."

Cueto was not at his cubicle in the Reds clubhouse before their game Monday against Cleveland.

Baker questions whether Garza would have been as upset had he pitched better than his four-inning, four-run outing.
