It was a wild game for the Chicago Cubs in the opening series with the San Diego Padres as they needed to head into extras to get the win. Thanks to multiple errors by the San Diego Padres the Cubs got their wish and got the win they needed.
On the mound for the Cubs is Jon Lester who has given up home runs in consecutive games for the first time this season. Despite that, the Cubs have won his past eight outings, and 15 of his 18 starts. The lefty is 2-1 lifetime with a 2.97 ERA against the Padres.
San Diego Padres
It is a three game losing streak for the San Diego Padres right now as they must break this streak before the All-Star game. In this stretch, the Padres have only lost by one run in each game as they have been right on the heels of breaking it. Could Sunday be a different story?
On the mound for the Padres will be Eric Lauer whose first half has been a tale of two halves. He posted a 7.67 ERA through Memorial Day, but he owns a 2.33 mark since then. The rookie left-hander is coming off his best start yet — 8 2/3-innings of one-run ball vs. the Dodgers.
