San  Diego,  CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Chase  Headley knocked in three runs and 
the  Padres got homers  from Yonder Alonso and Yasmani Grandal in an 11-1 rout 
of the Chicago Cubs. 

Tim  Stauffer (2-0)  allowed two hits over  five innings to get the win in his 
first start since May 14, 2012. The 31-year-old right-handed long reliever was 
pressed  into the  rotation due  to Robbie  Erlin hitting  the disabled  list. 
Stauffer didn't disappoint, as he had five strikeouts and walked one batter. 

This  was  Stauffer's first victory as  a starter since Sept. 16, 2011 against 
Arizona. He made 55 appearances out of the Padres bullpen in between starts 

"We talked about it internally about the experience," Padres manager Bud Black 
said  of Stauffer. "He's been out there before. Giving us five was great based 
on what we have to do tomorrow." 

Black  said the  Padres would bring up  Billy Buckner from Triple-A El Paso to 
start  Saturday's  contest. Buckner takes  the spot  of Andrew Cashner, who is 
also on the DL. 

Seth  Smith, Alonso and  Grandal each ended with two RBI. Cameron Maybin had a 
pair  of  doubles and  scored three  times, as the  Padres snapped a four-game 
skid. 

Edwin Jackson (3-4) surrendered nine hits and eight runs over four innings for 
the Cubs,  who failed to  build on  Thursday's 5-1 win  in the opener of this 
four-game set. 

"Today  was just  a terrible job making adjustments all around," said Jackson. 
"No excuses, just flat out terrible job at making adjustments." 

Welington Castillo recorded the lone RBI for the Cubs. 

Stauffer  had a  huge lead to work with,  as the Padres built a 7-0 lead after 
two  innings. Everth Cabrera singled, Maybin doubled and Smith followed with a 
two-run single to right. One out later, Alonso homered to right field. 

Grandal  led off the  home second with a homer to left, and Headley doubled in 
two more later in the frame. 

Headley  tacked on an RBI base hit in the fourth before the Cubs finally broke 
through in the seventh on Castillo's run-scoring single. 

The  Padres added three more in the home seventh, highlighted by Jedd Gyorko's 
RBI double.
