SAN DIEGO (AP) - Ian Kennedy pitched six strong innings and the San Diego Padres held on for a 4-3 win over the Chicago Cubs on Sunday.

Kennedy (3-6) allowed one run and two hits with six strikeouts. He walked two in earning his first win in five starts. Huston Street got his 14th save in as many chances, although he gave up a two-run homer to Starlin Castro in the ninth inning.

The Cubs, who had four hits, were trying to win their first series since Sept. 9-11 in Cincinnati.

The Padres went ahead, 2-1, in the sixth inning on Carlos Quentin's pinch-hit single off reliever James Russell, after Chase Headley's sacrifice fly tied the game. Two walks by starter Jason Hammel (5-3) helped extend the inning.
