WASHINGTON (AP) -- Starlin Castro hit a run-scoring double in the eighth inning to break a scoreless tie and Aramis Ramirez hit a two-run homer to lift the Chicago Cubs to a 4-0 win over the Washington Nationals on Wednesday night.

Ryan Dempster (12-8) threw seven scoreless innings, allowing two hits and striking out eight.
