    If you arrived at Petco Park a little late for the first pitch, you didn't miss much. In fact, the first run wasn't scored until the 13th inning.

    The Cubs got their first run on a bizarre play. Padres first baseman Jesus Guzman hit Nate Schierholtz in the helmet on a throw after he stumbled out of the batter's box on what was sure to be a bases-loaded double play. Chicago tacked on another run on a sacrifice fly to make it 2-0 heading into the bottom of the 13th.

    It was an unlikely comeback for the Padres who hadn't scored in four-plus hours. Ronny Cedeno tripled to score Guzman making the score 2-1 Cubs. Cedeno promptly scored on a wild pitch by Kevin Gregg to tie the game at two.

    After a scoreless 14th, the Padres won 3-2 with a walk-off single by Nick Hundley in the bottom of the 15th.

    The Padres used seven pitchers. The Cubs ran through eight. The Friars hit the road for six games, the first three in Arizona beginning Monday.
