The Cubs and Padres did battle on the little league field last week. The Cubs trailed late in the game, but used a double-digit final inning that lifted them to the win.
The Cubs took the lead in the first inning with three runs (3-0). The Padres made up two of the runs in the second inning, cutting the lead to 3-2.
The Padres went up 5-3 in the fourth inning, and 6-5 in the sixth. The Cubs would explode in the sixth inning, with the first ten batters crossing the plate. They would score two more runs in the inning to take the 17-6 lead.
The Padres would start the bottom of the inning well, scoring a run (17-7). However, the rally would then die, giving the Cubs the 17-7 win.
Cubs (17) Andrew Ford 3 runs; D. Stidham 1 hit and 3 runs; Mason McAlarnis 3 hits (HR) and 4 runs; Ben Gambill 2 hits and 2 runs; Brayden Howard 2 hits; D. North 1 run; Damian Stacy 1 run; Luke Dixon 1 hit and 1 run; and Kyle 1 run.
