CHICAGO (AP) -Mike Cameron hit two homers and the San Diego Padres hit a season-high five in an 11-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Sunday.
Cameron hit a two-run shot to center in the first inning and followed Adrian Gonzalez's two-run drive in the third with a homer off Rich Hill (5-5) that made it 5-1. Khalil Greene added a three-run homer off Sean Gallagher in the fifth, and Rob Bowen hit a solo drive against Michael Wuertz in the eighth.
That was plenty for Greg Maddux (6-3), who allowed three runs and seven hits in his second start against the Cubs since they traded him to the Los Angeles Dodgers at the deadline last July. He struck out one and did not walk a batter in winning his 339th game.
Gonzalez went 4-for-5 and scored four runs, and Cameron had three hits, drove in three runs and scored three times as the NL West leaders won for the fourth time in five games. The Padres tied a season high for runs.
Hill lasted just three innings, allowing five runs and five hits in his shortest outing this season.
