Recap: San Diego vs. Chicago Cubs

San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - They were the victim of a bizarre play that nearly cost them the game, but the San Diego Padres rallied and captured a 3-2 win over the Chicago Cubs on Nick Hundley's game-winning hit in the 15th inning.

The game's first run was scored in the 13th, when the Cubs' Nate Schierholtz pushed a run across by taking a throw to the plate off his head. A sac fly from Brian Bogusevic made it 2-0 Cubs, but the Padres came back with two runs of their own, with the tying run scoring on a wild pitch from Kevin Gregg.

The Padres botched an opportunity to score in the 14th and the Cubs followed suit in the top of the 15th, a common theme of a game which saw the teams combine to go 2-for-26 with runners in scoring position and strand 29 total runners.

Both of those hits belonged to San Diego, with Hundley accounting for the second on his base knock into center off Hector Rondon (2-1), allowing Logan Forsythe to score easily from second.

"These (games) are great when you win, devastating when you lose," said Padres manager Bud Black.

Dale Thayer (2-3) averted a bases loaded jam in the top of the 15th, getting Junior Lake and Donnie Murphy to ground out, to pick up the win.

The Cubs had just two hits through the first 10 innings, both off San Diego starter Andrew Cashner, who went seven and struck out seven. It took them until the 13th to finally get a legitimate threat going.

They loaded the bases for Schierholtz, who sent a grounder down the first base line. He appeared to slip out of the batter's box on what had the makings of a double play, and when he looked up, Jesus Guzman's throw to the plate hit him the head. A run came home and Bogusevic added a sac fly to make it 2-0.

Gregg was unable to lock down the save, however, allowing a one-out double to Guzman and then an RBI triple to Ronny Cedeno. Cedeno then raced home and scored when Gregg had his pitch get away from Welington Castillo.

Chase Headley had a chance to win the game in the 14th, but struck out looking with runners on second and third to end the inning.

Game Notes

Cubs starter Chris Rusin allowed three hits and walked four over 6 1/3 innings ... Chicago has lost 11 of its last 14 games ... The Padres had 13 hits, with Chris Denorfia and Forsythe finishing with two apiece ... Game time: 5:13.
