James Russell (2-0) pitched a scoreless ninth to earn the win.

Carlos Quentin hit two homers and drove in four runs for the Padres. He had six extra-base hits and six RBI in the three-game series.

Chris Denorfia also hit a two-run homer for San Diego.

The Cubs tied the game in the eighth when pinch-runner Tony Campana stole second and third with two outs and scored on Starlin Castro's infield single.
