Nationals Rally Again, Beat Cubs 7-4
CHICAGO (AP) -- Adam LaRoche homered and matched a career-high with four hits, and the Washington Nationals again rallied late against Kerry Wood and Carlos Marmol, scoring five runs in the eighth to beat the Chicago Cubs 7-4 on Saturday.

LaRoche drove a two-run shot off Matt Garza in the fourth. The Cubs chased Gio Gonzalez with three in the bottom half to go up 4-2. But Washington sent up 11 batters in the eighth and hammered Wood (0-1) and Marmol again after they faltered in a 2-1 loss on Thursday.

Danny Espinosa started the winning rally with a two-out solo homer in the eighth off Wood, who walked three straight to force in the tying run in the opener.
