CHICAGO — Justin Ruggiano’s two-out, two-run double broke a tie in the seventh inning, leading the Chicago Cubs to a 5-3 victory over the Washington Nationals on Thursday night.

Starlin Castro had two RBIs and Anthony Rizzo went 3 for 4 with two doubles and a run scored.

The Cubs had dropped four of five games before the win.
