Will Venable had three hits and three RBIs, including a tiebreaking solo homer in the seventh inning, and the Padres rallied to beat the Chicago Cubs 8-6 on Friday night. Jedd Gyorko homered twice and drove in a career-high four runs as the Padres stormed back after Chicago scored six times in the first inning. Chase Headley and Logan Forsythe had two hits apiece. "We just kept pecking away," San Diego manager Bud Black said. "And the pitchers just kept the momentum on our side." Nate Schierholtz hit a three-run homer in the first, but Chicagos lineup stalled after the fast start. "They beat our butts the last eight innings," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. Nick Vincent (3-1) pitched a scoreless inning for the win and Huston Street got three outs for his 25th save in 26 chances, running his scoreless streak to 16 1-3 innings. It was a remarkable turnaround from the start of the game, when San Diego appeared to be headed for a long night when the first eight batters reached against Edinson Volquez. Leadoff batter Starlin Castro reached on a throwing error by third baseman Headley, moved to second on Anthony Rizzos single and scored on Dioner Navarros base hit. Schierholtz then connected for his 19th homer to make it 4-0. Brian Bogusevic added a two-run triple and Volquez was lifted after only recording two outs, matching the shortest start of his career. The right-hander was 5-0 with a 2.76 ERA in seven career starts against the Cubs. Tim Stauffer came in and pitched 4 1-3 innings of one-hit ball. The Padres bullpen threw 8 1-3 shutout innings in the win. "It was really Tim keeping us in the game and the bullpen doing a great job," Venable said. "The positive thing was there was still a long game to go and we were able to crawl back in there." San Diego responded with three in the fourth on Gyorkos 15th homer, a drive to centre on a 1-1 pitch from Edwin Jackson. Venable added a two-run triple of his own in the fifth, and the Padres were right back in thhe game.dddddddddddd Venable went 3 for 4 and is batting .373 (31 for 83) with six homers and 12 RBIs in his last 21 games. His 18th homer travelled an estimated 441 feet into the right-field seats. "That was one of the longest ones of the year," Black said. "Hes swinging at strikes and taking balls, as simple as that sounds. He is putting good swings on the ball." Forsythe came up with a tying triple in the seventh, and Venable put San Diego ahead to stay with his shot off James Russell (1-5). Gyorko greeted Blake Parker with a drive to right on his first pitch of the eighth, providing an insurance run. "Its not the ideal start, but there is nine innings of baseball left and anything can happen," Gyorko said. "We had great at-bats up and down the lineup." Jackson allowed six runs, five earned, and 10 hits in six-plus innings. He is winless in his last four starts. "Your team goes out and gives you six runs and any starter that we have, we all feel the same way. If you cant hold a six-run lead, its real disappointing," Jackson said. Black said he sensed the Padres would come back when Stauffer was greeted at the mound by catcher Nick Hundley. "When we made the pitching change Nick was the first guy to say, Hey, we got nine at-bats," Black said. "All the (infielders) had a good look in their eye."
