San Diego Padres vs. Chicago Cubs, second game of the series. The Fathers last night won the second game of this long series. So far the home team is not favorite to win the series, but the last series at home was a victory for the Padres. The Cubs are looking for victories, and each defeat hurts more than the last. The team is far from the Cardinals, but anything can happen in September before the end of the regular season.
