sweep!!

The Giants swept the hated Dodgers this afternoon by shutting them out in three straight games, to advance to a first place tie in their division.

 

In the storied history of the two ancient baseball franchises, this series shutout is an unprecedented achievement.

 

Fantastic starting pitching by Barry Zito, Ryan Vogelsong, and Tim "The Freak" Lincecum, aided by flawless bullpen work from Kantos, Loux, Affeldt, Casilla, Lopez and Romo kept the Dodgers from scoring in the 27 innings of the series.
