(WASHINGTON, DC) - Wilson Ramos' suicide squeeze bunt in the bottom of the seventh inning drove home the go-ahead run as the Washington Nationals edged the Chicago Cubs 5-4.

Before Ramos' squeeze, the game was a battle of two-run home runs.

Danny Espinosa put the Nats on the board in the first with a two-run shot off Cubs starter Randy Wells.

The Cubs tied it in the second with Carlos Pena's two-run blast off Nationals starter Tom Gorzelanny.

Ryan Zimmerman touched Wells for a two-run homer in the fifth, but Aramis Ramirez hammered a two-run shot off Gorzelanny in the sixth.

Michael Morse led off the seventh with a double and advanced to third on a Jayson Werth fly out.

Morse scored when Ramos dropped a bunt down the third base line.
