Vogelsong strong over seven innings in a win - Ryan Vogelsong (S) San Francisco Giants

Ryan Vogelsong picked up his eighth win of the season, holding the Brewers to two runs over seven innings as the Giants enjoyed a cakewalk 13-2 victory on Friday.

Tougher test for SF Giants: The Brewers, plus lineup

Now that the injury-depleted Rockies have left, the Giants take on the Central-leading Milwaukee Brewers for three games, and the offense will be tested immediately. The Giants and Ryan Vogelsong face Wily Peralta, a 15-game winner who held San Francisco to one unearned run in 6 1/3 innings in Milwaukee earlier this month.

The Giants are shooting for their first four-game winning streak since early June. Vogelsong is...

What an ugly loss — rotten job by SF Giants’ bullpen in 14-6 loss

Washington – Ryan Vogelsong outpitched Stephen Strasburg. Then the sixth inning happened. The Giants were on their way to a Sunday matinee victory over the Nationals, a series win and a 4-2 trip. Their 5-0 lead disappeared, however, and they lost 14-6 — 13-run swing. The worst loss of the season.

Ryan Vogelsong overcomes running gaffe, guides SF Giants to victory

By Henry Schulman Milwaukee – The Giants and their fans got to attend science lab Wednesday night. Under the microscope was Ryan Vogelsong. The academic question under consideration was whether the 37-year-old pitcher would shrink or grow after an inexcusable blunder on the bases cost the team at least one run. Vogelsong’s line over six innings provided the answer. He held the National League’s second-highest scoring offense to one run on a homer to his first batter, Carlos Gomez. Vogelsong’s refusal to break under the weight of his two mistakes and and several impressive offensive...
