The Cubs added four more in the sixth on Scales' second two-run double, Aaron Miles' RBI single and Dempster's double into the gap. Before his run-scoring hits, Dempster was 0 for 17 without an RBI this year.
Notes: Carlos Zambrano, the Cubs' $91.5 million ace, said he won't be bunting for hits when he comes off the DL next week. "For a month, I'll be running like Geo Soto, just taking my time," he said. Zambrano, who strained his left hamstring while legging out a bunt on May 3, is scheduled to make a minor league rehab start Sunday before returning to the Cubs' rotation May 22 at San Diego. ... Padres SS Luis Rodriguez, who sprained his left ankle Wednesday, is expected to go on the DL. ... Cubs OF Kosuke Fukudome is batting .462 during a seven-game hitting streak. ... Since Jake Peavy won April 16, San Diego starters are 0-12 with a 5.47 ERA.
