Wang hasn't allowed a hit versus Cubs through five

Nationals right-hander Chien-Ming Wang has pitched very well so far against the Chicago Cubs.

Wang has not allowed a hit through five innings and has induced 10 ground ball outs. He has walked two and hit one batter, but otherwise has looked much improved from his early struggles in his first two starts.

Matt Garza has been equal to the task, striking out eight Nationals' through five innings. Garza has struck out every hitter in the Nationals lineup at least once, except for Ryan Zimmerman.

Jonny Gomes has a double, Rick Ankiel and Zimmerman have base hits. The Nationals have left one man on base in each of the first five frames.

No score, top of the sixth.
