    Summary of 2 articles · Updated May 2, 2013
    The San Diego Padres had a most unusual rally against the Chicago Cubs But 10 San Diego hitters came to bat in the eighth, and a hopeful Wrigley Field crowd saw a late 2-0 lead turn into a 4-2 deficit. In a matter of half an inning Thursday, the Padres' offense went from silent to fortunate, and finally, triumphant. Travis Wood retired his first 14 batters before Kyle Blanks singled, and he led 2-0 when Jesus Guzman reached on an infield single leading off the eighth. With two men on and one out, Nick Hundley flew out into foul territory down the right-field line, where Julio Borbon's sprawling catch against the wall allowed Guzman to advance.
