Wednesday's rubber match between the Cubs and Padres was a back and forth affair filled with fireworks. Luke Voit broke a 1-1 tie in the 2nd inning with his first home run as a Padre. The Cubs added 4 runs in the 4th inning to take a 5-2 lead. Eric Hosmer and Luke Voit each homered in the 7th inning to even the score at 5 apiece. The Cubs retook the lead in the 8th inning on Alfonso Rivas' 2-run single, as the Cubs held on to win 7-5 and win the series. The Padres now hit the road and will begin a 3-game series against the Braves on Friday.
