Junior Lake drove-in a run on an infield single in the bottom of-the-ninth and Donnie Murphy followed with a two-run homer that tied the game at 4-4.
Denard Span scored the game winning run from third base in the top of-the 13th inning when Chad Tracy grounded out to the pitcher.
Nationals' starting pitcher Steven Strasburg was trying for a complete game when the Cubs came back.
