Cubs 5, Padres 3: Cubs break Padres winning streak


I feel like I haven't done a game recap in forever. I only saw the middle innings of this one, so we'll learn what happened together.

1st Inning

Jeff Samardzija started this game for the Cubbies with a walk to Everth Cabrera. Chase Headley continued his hot streak with a single. That's when Samarzija threw 2 wild pitches to the next to batters. One moving Cabrera to third and the next to home. Boom, early lead.

1-0 Padres

2nd Inning

This is about the time I tuned in. Right when two former Padres Scott Hairston and Cody Ransom homered back to back off Clayton Richard. What a bitter pill to swallow.

2-1 Cubs

4th Inning

I think i tuned out again in the 4th because I don't remember Darwin Barney doubling to center field to score Welington Castillo.

3-1 Cubs

5th Inning

Okay I definitely didn't see the 5th inning because that's when the Padres came back. Everth Cabrera singled on a deflected ball of the pitcher. Then Chris Denorfia walked. Chase Headley struck out. Carlos Quentin picked up the slack and walked the bases loaded. Alonso singled to score two Padres.


6th inning

Of course Cody Ransom singled to Alfonso Soriano. Of course he did. Then he and his buddy scored on a Darwin Barney double. Of course they did.

5-3 Cubs

I'm guessing a bunch of interesting stuff happened after that but that's where the scoring ended, so that's where this recap ends.
