SAN DIEGO (AP) — Derek Norris hit a two-run double with one out in the eighth and James Shields struck out 11 in seven innings to lead the San Diego Padres to a 4-3 victory against the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday night.

The Padres snapped a three-game losing streak in which they scored only six runs.

Although he got a no-decision, Shields reached double digits in strikeouts for the second time in five games. He held Chicago to two runs on six hits, including homers by Chris Coghlan and Dexter Fowler.

Coghlan also homered off closer Craig Kimbrel with two outs in the ninth, his sixth. It was his fourth career multihomer game.

With runners on the corners in the eighth, Norris doubled to left off Pedro Strop, who had just replaced James Russell (0-1).
