Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Scott Feldman pitched his first career complete
game and set a personal best with 12 strikeouts as the Chicago Cubs topped the
San Diego Padres, 6-2, at Wrigley Field.
Feldman (2-3) gave up homers to Jedd Gyorko and Chase Headley among the three
San Diego hits. The right-hander walked just one batter and contributed an RBI

Former Cub Andrew Cashner (1-2) allowed six hits and five runs -- four earned
-- over four innings, as the Padres lost for just the second time in their

Starlin Castro's single into center field plated Julio Bourbon in the opening
inning in the third portion of this four-game series.
Feldman's double to the right field corner scored Darwin Barney in the second,

innings. Feldman struck out the side in the third and fourth frames.
"That was actually a big hit at that time to get things going," Cubs manager
Dale Sveum said of Feldman's double.
Navarro's two-bagger to the gap in right-center field scored Anthony Rizzo and
Castro in the third, and Bourbon came home on Luis Valbuena's groundout in the
fourth for a 5-0 cushion.

Gyorko started the eighth with his first career homer, a shot to left-center
field. Headley homered to right with one out in the ninth, but Sveum left
Feldman in to finish the job he started.
"It's been something I've wanted to do for a while," Feldman said of his first
complete game. "Originally the plan was for me to throw eight. I went back and
asked skip if I could throw a CG and thankfully he didn't take me out."
The Cubs have won five of their last seven contests ... Feldman's previous
career-high of 11 strikeouts came Aug. 23, 2009 at Tampa Bay when he pitched
for Texas ... Feldman threw 80 of his 114 pitches for strikes.
