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.

Denard Span went 2 for 4 with two doubles and two RBIs for the Nationals.

Neither starter was involved in the decision. The Cubs’ Travis Wood gave up three runs on seven hits in 6 2/3 innings and was hurt most by five walks. Washington’s Doug Fister also allowed three runs on seven hits.

Cubs reliever Neil Ramirez (1-1) got the win and Hector Rondon pitched a perfect ninth for his ninth save.
