Mark Trumbo’s slam off Ryan Vogelsong dooms SF Giants

By Henry Schulman Phoenix – The night began with Angel Pagan being scratched with a stiff back and got decidedly worse for the Giants, who can ill afford any losses. Mark Trumbo’s grand slam against Ryan Vogelsong, the first allowed by the Giant, fairly settled a 6-2 Diamondbacks victory in the opener of a three-game series at Chase Field. Trumbo gave Arizona a 4-0 lead in the third inning, and the Giants could not recover. The Giants’ first three-game losing streak since Aug. 23-25 widened their deficit in the National League West to four games with 12 to play. They lead the Pirates by...
