Padres 2W: Linebrink (3-1)
L: Hermanson (0-2)White Sox 1
Ramon Hernandez homered with one out in the ninth inning to tie it, and Damian Jackson hit a game-winning bases-loaded single to rally San Diego at home.
The NL West-leading Padres won for just the third time in 10 games, a span in which they've scored just 21 runs.
Hernandez homered on a 2-2 pitch from Dustin Hermanson, who blew his first save in 16 chances.
Sean Burroughs followed with a single to left, PH Robert Fick singled to right and PH Mark Sweeney was intentionally walked to load the bases.
With the infield in, Jackson slapped a single past SS Juan Uribe to score Burroughs.
