Cubs Lose To Lowly National At Wrigley

Posted: Updated:

Willie Harris hit his first career grand slam and a two-run homer, and the Washington Nationals overcame a four-run deficit to beat the Chicago Cubs 13-5 on Friday.

The Nationals entered the game with the worst record in the majors while the Cubs had the best. Washington won its second in a row following a 12-game losing streak.

Harris hit his slam off reliever Neal Cotts to cap a six-run sixth inning that put the Nationals ahead 6-4. He added a two-run shot in the ninth off Chad Gaudin for his first multi-homer game in the majors.
