Nationals Stay Hot with Win Over Cubs

WASHINGTON (AP) - Ian Desmond's three hits included a two-run homer and an RBI double, and Danny Espinosa and Kurt Suzuki also drove in runs with doubles, helping the Washington Nationals beat the Chicago Cubs 7-3 for their season-high fifth consecutive victory.

Despite playing without Bryce Harper (ingrown toenail) or Jayson Werth (injured right hamstring), the Nationals won for the seventh time in eight games. Ross Detwiler (2-3) gave up two runs in 6 2-3 innings, and Craig Stammen got the last seven outs.

Chicago's Jeff Samardzija (1-5) lost his fifth decision in a row by allowing seven runs - five earned - and eight hits. He threw 73 pitches in his five innings, matching his shortest outing of the season.
