Young Throws 5 Strong Innings to Lead Padres
SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Chris Young and four relievers combined on a four hitter and the San Diego Padres showed some life in the waning days of the playoff race, beating the Chicago Cubs 3-0 on Wednesday night to remain 1{ games behind Atlanta in the NL wild card race.

San Diego came into Wednesday the night two games behind San Francisco in the NL West. The Giants were hosting Arizona on Wednesday night.

The Padres won for just the 12th time in 33 games since Aug. 25, when they were 76-49 and had a 6{-game lead over the Giants. The Padres had scored a total of only four runs in losing their previous three games.

Atlanta, which beat Florida 5-1 on Wednesday, is off Thursday while the Padres finish this four-game series. San Diego closes the regular season with three games at San Francisco.
