Geoff Blum's double in the 14th inning brought home the go-ahead run and Trevor Hoffman made it hold up for his third save. Including Hoffman's scoreless inning, the Padres bullpen shut out the Cubs over the last nine innings in relief of Greg Maddux.
The Major League debut of Felix Pie was an eventful one. He collected his first big-league hit and RBI in the same at-bat in the fifth inning, scored the game-tying run and threw out the potential winning run in the 10th. But the Cubs had to settle for a series split.
a-Singled for Maddux in the 6th. b-Grounded out for Meredith in the 8th. c-Flied out for Kouzmanoff in the 9th. d-Walked for Linebrink in the 10th. e-Flied out for Bell in the 12th. f-Popped out for Brocail in the 14th.
