Rizzo homers, Cubs hold off Nationals' rally for 6-5 win

WASHINGTON (AP) The Chicago Cubs had watched most of their five-run lead against the Washington Nationals dissipate by the time Steve Cishek entered Sunday night's game in the seventh inning.

Cishek closed it out, pitching 2 1/3 scoreless innings for his fourth save as the Cubs held on for a 6-5 win.

"He's the first guy in line at Dairy Queen," Cubs manager Joe Maddon joked afterward. "That is above and beyond. I was planning on two innings, but then he had to go (get) an extra out."
