Mejia homers as Padres beat Cubs 5-1 to avoid sweep

CHICAGO (AP) Adrian Morejon started his first major league game while sometimes-starter Cal Quantrill came out of the bullpen.

The strategy worked. And the offense did the rest.

Francisco Mejia homered, Fernando Tatis Jr. drove in three runs and the San Diego Padres avoided the sweep, beating the Chicago Cubs 5-1 on Sunday.
