No 4-game sweep for the Nats

It turns out that this could have been the first 4-game sweep by a visitor at ATT Park, per the SF Chronicle 

Thanks, Tim Hudson -- no matter what else happens, a loss today would have been TOUGH TO TAKE.

Here's Henry Schulman's take -- 

As bad as the series was for the Giants, they lost only one game off the fat 9 ½-game division lead they had at the start, as the Dodgers split a four-game series in Cincinnati.
The Giants are 4-3 on a homestand that ends with a visit from the Rockies, who have cooled considerably since their most recent game was suspended in a 2-2 tie.
The Giants had the right guy on the mound in Hudson, their most consistent starter. The Giants are 10-2 in his starts, 8-1 following a loss. His majors-best ERA stands at 1.81.
Michael Morse, who seemed depressed after striking out with the bases loaded in the eighth inning of a 2-0 game Tuesday night, finally got the measure of his former team with three singles, two contributing to a pair of two-run rallies.
