Cubs Defeat Nats on Bases Loaded Walk; Win Fourth Straight
CHICAGO (AP) -- Aramis Ramirez walked with the bases loaded in the 10th inning to give the Chicago Cubs a 4-3 victory over the Washington Nationals Monday night, their fourth straight win.

Ryan Theriot, coming off a five-hit game against Milwaukee on Sunday, started the winning rally with a leadoff single to right against Brian Bruney (1-1). Derrek Lee walked with one out before Marlon Byrd blooped a single over second baseman Christian Guzman for his third hit. That loaded the bases for Ramirez, who walked on four pitches.

Carlos Marmol (1-0) pitched around a two-out double by Adam Dunn in the top of the 10th and recorded his first win since June 14 against Minnesota.
