Over .500 no more, the Cubs couldn’t muster any more than two runs in the first inning on Monday night and fell to the San Diego Padres, 5-2.
Jason Heyward singled home two in the top of the first inning for Kyle Hendricks, who was cruising early on Monday. Then he loaded the bases in the fourth and one mistake pitch to Hunter Renfroe changed the game.
Renfroe put if over the left field wall and the Padres gained the upper hand, 4-2. They would add another in the fifth against Hendricks and the scoring was over for the night.
Eddie Butler starts for Chicago on Tuesday, in danger of falling below .500 51 games into the season. Butler has been quite good for Chicago in his three starts this season, 14 innings and three runs allowed.
He’s given up just nine hits in those 14 innings but has walked 10.
San Diego Padres
Danielson Lamet is making his second start for the Padres this season. He threw five good innings against the Mets last week, allowing three hits and one run (a solo home run) while striking out eight. He threw just 91 pitches.

Jared Cosart only made it through four innings on Monday so it was a long night for San Diego’s bullpen, which used four pitchers to get the last 15 outs. They were fantastic, however, and didn’t allow a hit for the last five innings, walking five.

Free Chicago Cubs vs. San Diego Padres MLB Prediction: the Cubs bounce back to win game two.
I just can’t really find a way to take San Diego, though this is about as close as I’ll get. Vegas has a surprisingly affordable price on the Cubs, which raises suspicion.

But I just can’t resist. The Cubs don’t want to fall below .500.
