Nationals get 19 hits in 13-0 win over Cubs

Gio Gonzalez pitched eight sparkling innings and Ryan Zimmerman tied a career high with four hits and drove in three runs as the Washington Nationals roughed up the Chicago Cubs without recently traded Jeff Samardzija for a 13-0 victory Saturday.

Jayson Werth and Anthony Rendon added three hits and two RBIs for the Nationals on a day the Cubs were forced to start Carlos Villanueva (4-6) following the trade of Samardzija, the scheduled starter, and Jason Hammel to the Oakland Athletics.

Washington posted a season high in runs and hits (19), including eight doubles but no home runs.

Gonzalez (6-4) allowed four hits, while striking out seven and walking one. He's now thrown 29 consecutive scoreless innings against Chicago and 22 overall.
