    Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Matt Garza delivers during the first inning.

    Chien-Ming Wang allowed one hit over six scoreless innings, Jonny Gomes hit a two-run homer and the Washington Nationals beat the Chicago Cubs 3-1 on Tuesday night.

    In his third start -- and first on the road --  after missing more than two years following shoulder surgery, Wang (1-2) won for the first time since June 28, 2009, against the New York Mets as a member of the Yankees.

    Michael Morse added a long home run and Ryan Zimmerman extended his hitting streak to 17 games for the Nationals, who have won three of four.

    The Cubs have lost two games after winning a season-high seven straight.

    Cubs starter Matt Garza (5-9) allowed three runs and six hits in six innings. He had nine strikeouts and two walks.
