SAN DIEGO (AP) — Carlos Quentin hit a three-run homer, Ross Ohlendorf pitched effectively into the seventh inning and the San Diego Padres ruined Brooks Raley’s major league debut Tuesday night with a 7-4 victory over the floundering Chicago Cubs.
Chase Headley and Everth Cabrera each drove in two runs for San Diego, which has won eight of 10 at home.
Chicago lost its seventh consecutive game and has been outscored 38-16 during the slide.
Promoted from Triple-A Iowa, Raley (0-1) lasted four innings while allowing seven runs and eight hits. The left-hander had four strikeouts and three walks as a replacement for injured starter Matt Garza.
