Slumping Padres look to fix mistakes against Cubs

The heat figures to be on again Saturday at a sweltering Wrigley Field as the Padres and Cubs meet for the second game of a three-game series.

But the temperature could be much hotter on the Padres, who have lost six of seven games coming out of the All-Star break while displaying some of their worst fundamentals of the season.

Was it the oppressive heat at Wrigley Field on Friday that forced the Padres into two costly errors in a decisive eighth inning? Or was it simply an extension of bad play?
