Padres Beat Cubs Again
CHICAGO (AP) -- Will Venable hit a two-run single in the seventh inning and the San Diego Padres rallied to beat the Cubs 5-3 Thursday, completing their first four-game sweep of Chicago in their 42-year history.

The four-run seventh -- capped by Venable's dash home when the Cubs weren't paying attention to him -- made a winner of Mat Latos and helped the NL West-leading Padres to their 10th victory in 11 games.

The Cubs lost their seventh straight at home, their longest skid at Wrigley Field since 2006.

Latos (13-5) had a career-high 10 strikeouts in seven innings, yielding two runs and five hits.
