The Padres got back in the win column on Tuesday night after being shutout in 2 of their previous 3 games, beating the Cubs 5-4. Mike Clevinger made his 2nd start of the season, but wasn't able to make it out of the 5th inning. San Diego's offense showed up, notching 11 hits and scoring 5 runs. Things got interesting in the 9th inning, when Taylor Rogers was called upon to protect a 2-run lead. After allowing a run, he loaded the bases for Frank Schwindel, who hit a deep fly ball that Jurickson Profar caught with his back up against the left field wall. The rubber match of this series will be played Wednesday afternoon at 1:10.
