WASHINGTON (AP) - The Washington Nationals' winning streak ended at a team record-tying 10 games Friday night when rookie Joe Panik hit his first major league home run and sent the San Francisco Giants to a 10-3 romp.

Panik went 4 for 5 in his first four-hit game, highlighted by his three-run shot to center field.

Tim Hudson and four relievers quieted bats of the Nationals, who apparently don't have an inexhaustible supply of comeback wins and last-at-bat heroics. During their success streak, Washington had seven one-run victories, five come-from-behind wins and five walk-offs.

Hudson (9-9) allowed one earned run over 5 1-3 innings for his first since win July 19. Javier Lopez, Jean Machi, Sergio Romo and Juan Gutierrez finished the job for the Giants, who have won six of eight.

Doug Fister (12-4) threw six innings and uncharacteristically gave up a pair of homers - Nos. 12 and 13 allowed this season.
