Michael Busch homered to lead off the ninth inning, lifting the host Chicago Cubs to a walk-off, 3-2 victory over the San Diego Padres on Tuesday.

Cubs' Busch deposited a first-pitch fastball from Enyel De Los Santos (1-2) over the wall in right-centre field. The homer was Busch's seventh of the season and first since he went deep in five straight games from April 10-15.

The blast made a winner out of Hector Neris (2-0), who overcame a single and a walk to record a scoreless top of the ninth.

Jurickson Profar belted a two-run homer while Fernando Tatis Jr. and Jose Azocar had two hits apiece, but the Padres fell for the second time in three games. Jake Cronenworth reached on a sixth-inning single to extend his hitting streak to 11 games.
