Barney's Double Gives Cubs Win Over Nationals
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Darwin Barney's tiebreaking ninth-inning double, capped off a wild comeback and the Chicago Cubs rebounded from an eight-run deficit to beat the Washington Nationals 10-9 on Thursday night.

Tony Campana reached on a fielder's choice, stole second and scored when Barney doubled to right off Henry Rodriguez (3-2). It was Barney's third hit and RBI of the game.

Each Washington starter had at least one hit as the Nationals built an 8-0 lead in the fourth inning.

Chicago scored six runs in the sixth and two runs in the seventh to tie it.

The Cubs took a 9-8 lead in the top of the eighth, and the Nationals tied it at 9 in the bottom of the eighth.

Sean Marshall (5-2), the fifth Chicago pitcher, was the winner. He allowed one run in two hits.

Carlos Marmol pitched a scoreless ninth for his 18th save in 23 chances. He hit Rick Ankiel with a pitch leading off the inning, and walked Laynce Nix. But Marmol retired Roger Bernadina on a fly to right to end the game.
