CHICAGO (AP) — Darwin Barney and Cody Ransom each drove in two runs and the Chicago Cubs defeated the San Diego Padres 5-3 on Monday.

Barney hit a pair of RBI doubles as he went 2-for-3 and Ransom went 2-for-4 with a home run.

Both players also made nice defensive plays in the seventh with men in scoring position to preserve the Cubs’ lead.

Kevin Gregg got the final out of the eighth with men on second and third and worked a perfect ninth to get his fourth save.

After a 5-13 start to the season, the Cubs have won five of seven.

San Diego’s Clayton Richard (0-3) gave up five runs and seven hits, including two home runs, in 5 2/3 innings.

Everth Cabrera went 3 for 4 and scored two runs.
