After a disastrous road trip, it was a bittersweet day at AT&T Park as the San Francisco Giants took home a win over the Washington Nationals.

Manager Bruce Bochy said Vogelsong has two breaks in his right hand, at the pinky and knuckle. He’ll have surgery tomorrow and should be out between 4-6 weeks. “It’s a shame, because tonight was the Vogey that we know…he’ll be back hopefully in a couple months,” said Bochy. Vogelsong added to Bochy’s sentiment, saying “That’s the best I’ve felt in a long time, from a mental aspect and a physical aspect.
