WASHINGTON – After getting no-hit for five innings, the Cubs scratched back to score in each of the final two innings to beat the Washington Nationals 2-1 in the finale of a three-game series at National Park on Sunday.

Starlin Castro’s two-out single to left in the eighth, drove home pinch-runner Travis Wood with the tying run.

And the Cubs took advantage of catcher Kurt Suzuki’s throwing error in the ninth on a double steal – his throw to third deflecting off batter Welington Castillo’s bat – to score the game winner with one out in the ninth.

Suzuki’s throw sailed down the left-field line as Alfonso Soriano jogged home with the winner.

Kevin Gregg pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for the save.
