    Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong mashed again in third straight loss

    One might have thought it couldn't get much worse for Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong. One might have been wrong. Vogelsong has been downright masterful lately in comparison to the pounding he took Thursday in Colorado. He surrendered eight runs on 11 hits in just three innings for his third consecutive defeat. He walked none and fanned one. The right-hander yielded a two-run homer to sizzling Carlos Gonzalez in a four-run first inning in which he gave up six hits and it was all downhill from there. Vogelsong, who is trying in vain to maintain a rotation spot, has given up 14 runs over his last 11 innings to send his ERA soaring to 4.58.

    Giants SP Matt Vogelsong bounced early in loss to Pirates

    Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong might not be a Giants starter for long, especially considering his latest effort. Vogelsong, who has already lost his spot once and regained it only due to injury, did not make it through the fourth inning Sunday in Pittsburgh. He fell to 9-9 after surrendering three runs on seven hits and four walks in 3 1/3 innings. He was all but doomed in the first, when three singles, two walks and a sacrifice fly resulted in three runs. He escaped a bases-loaded jam in the third, then left in the fourth after a single and walk. His performance raised his ERA on the year to 4.05.

    Giants' Ryan Vogelson goes five innings for eighth win Thursday

    Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong turned in a strong outing against the Nationals on Thursday night. The veteran hurler allowed one run on three hits over five innings. He walked four and struck out a season-high eight batters in the 3-1 victory. Vogelsong (8-8, 4.15 ERA) got off to an unencouraging start, as he allowed a home run to Yunel Escobar on the very first pitch of the game. But the righty settled in from there, aptly keeping the Nationals off the board from that point on. The high walk and strikeout totals left him with 94 pitches through five innings. But it was a solid, gutsy performance for the 38-year-old. Thursday's start was just the second since the end of June for Vogelsong. He had been pitching out of the bullpen lately, but with injuries to Tim Hudson and Tim Lincecum, Vogelsong has found himself back in the rotation for now.
