Hudson, Francoeur swat Nats
Errors loom large in loss
Matt Chico may have taken the loss on Tuesday, but the defeat may be attributed more to the team's defense than to its starter. Chico was changed with four runs, but only one was earned, after Dmitri Young and Ronnie Belliard committed errors.

Hudson handcuffs Nats
Jeff Francoeur connected on a towering three-run homer in the eighth, bringing his RBI total on the night to five, but the game had long been put away thanks to Andruw Jones' solo homer and the stellar pitching by starter Tim Hudson, who allowed no runs, fanned seven and didn't allow a hit until the fifth.
