National League Game Summary - Chicago at San Diego



(Sunday, May 25th)

Final Score: San Diego 4, Chicago 3

San Diego, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Ian Kennedy threw six strong innings as the San Diego Padres grabbed a 4-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs to earn a split of a four-game set.

Kennedy (3-6) gave up a run on two hits with two walks and six strikeouts for the Padres, who had dropped five of six coming into the game. Chase Headley, Carlos Quentin and Jedd Gyorko each drove in a run.

"Kennedy was great tonight, he had to work out of a jam in the second inning and his pitch count got a little elevated, but he was good," said San Diego manager Bud Black. "He deserved this one because we haven't given him a lot of runs."

Starlin Castro hit a two-run home run and Junior Lake added a solo shot for the Cubs, who had won five of seven. Jason Hammel (5-3) gave up three runs on three hits while walking two and striking out five in 5 2/3 innings.

The game stayed scoreless until the top of the sixth when Lake drove a pitch over the wall in left for his sixth home run of the year to give the Cubs a 1-0 lead. In the home half, though, San Diego took over.

The Padres had stranded runners on the corners in the fifth, but their first three batters reached base to start the home sixth and Headley tied the game with a sacrifice fly.

James Russell then took over for Hammel and promptly served up a pitch to pinch-hitter Carlos Quentin, who drove it to left for an RBI single. Brian Schlitter came on the mound and Gyorko greeted him with a double to center that scored two more runs as Emilio Bonifacio misplayed the ball for a 4-1 lead.

"He had done so well because I think he had only given up three hits until that point," said Cubs manager Rick Renteria about Hammel. "We were going to try and get out of it and help him out, but we just couldn't get much going."

Huston Street gave up a two-run home run to Castro with no outs in the ninth, but retired the next three batters for his 14th save of the season.

Game Notes

Earlier on Sunday, the Cubs signed former All-Star slugger Manny Ramirez to a minor-league contract as a player-coach for the team's Triple-A club in Iowa. He hit 555 home runs over 19 seasons, but hasn't played in the majors since a five-game stint with Tampa Bay in 2011 ... Kennedy had been 0-3 in his previous four starts ... Chicago starts a three-game series in San Francisco on Monday ... The Padres play the next six games on the road starting in Arizona on Monday ... Chicago went 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position.
