Cubs sweep Padres with 7-4 win

SAN DIEGO (AP) Jon Lester and the Chicago Cubs are on top of the National League at the All-Star break.

Lester won for the eighth time in nine starts, Jason Heyward drove in two runs and the Cubs beat the sloppy San Diego Padres 7-4 on Sunday for a three-game series sweep.

Chicago closed out a 4-2 West Coast trip. With All-Star second baseman Javier Baez putting together a big first half, the Cubs (55-38) lead the Milwaukee Brewers by 2 1/2 games in the NL Central.
