1st Win for Quade as Cubs Beat Nationals
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Mike Quade got his first major league win, and so did Casey Coleman. The post-Piniella Chicago Cubs are off to quite a start.

Coleman, a rookie right-hander, took a one-hitter into the seventh inning, and Cubs interim manager Quade had a successful debut Monday night in a 9-1 victory over the Washington Nationals.

Making his second start and sixth major league appearance, Coleman (1-1) allowed one run and three hits with three strikeouts and two walks. He faced only three batters above the minimum until the seventh, when he gave up consecutive hits followed by Ivan Rodridguez's RBI groundout. Coleman collected his first major league hit, a single punched through a drawn-in infield in the fifth that also produced his first RBI.
