Light-hitting Giants give Vogelsong enough support

Notes, Quotes · Roster Report · Light-hitting Giants give Vogelsong enough support
 

The Giants don't hit much. In Pittsburgh, it didn't matter much.

After going 0-for-17 with runners in scoring position the first two games of the series, the Giants actually got a couple of hits in those situations during Thursday's series finale, a 5-2 San Francisco victory. Both were by Aaron Rowand.

So overall in the series, they were 2-for-24 with runners in scoring position.

And they won the series, two games to one.

Not with authority, but they'll take it.

It came just in time for Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong, an ex-Pirate who on Thursday made his first big-league start since 2004. The Giants dealt him to Pittsburgh in the 2001 Jason Schmidt trade, and he pitched for Pittsburgh through 2006.

He received offensive support from a lineup that excluded Buster Posey, Freddy Sanchez and Miguel Tejada. They were replaced by Eli Whiteside, Emmanuel Burriss and Mike Fontenot, who went a combined 3-for-11 with two runs.
