Road Woes for the Padres

Bobby Scales drove in four runs with two doubles and Ryan Dempster excelled with both his arm and bat as the Chicago Cubs took advantage of 10 walks for an 11-3 victory over the San Diego Padres.

Adrian Gonzalez homered for the fourth consecutive game but couldn't prevent San Diego from losing its 11th straight on the road, its longest skid in 38 years. Since starting the season 10-6, the Padres are 3-16.

Dempster allowed two runs and three hits over seven innings. He also drove in two runs with a double and a single as the Cubs completed their first home sweep of the Padres since 1999.

San Diego was outscored 42-18 during an 0-6 road trip.
