Giants beat Phillies 7-4

Ryan Vogelsong pitched on an island for a month, getting zero run support in four consecutive starts. Besieged by the flu Monday, Vogelsong finally broke down and had a clunker. Naturally, this was the night he received help from every corner of the clubhouse. The Giants pounded out 15 hits and got six shutout innings from their bullpen while beating the Philadelphia Phillies 7...

Newly Recalled Giants Propell San Francisco to 7-4 Win

In a back-and-forth game, the Giants overcame a shaky start by Ryan Vogelsong to take Game one against the Phillies 7-4. San Francisco scratched across the first run of the game, giving Vogelsong his first run of support since June 21. Pablo Sandoval and Michael Morse led off the top of the second with back-to-back singles, and Gregor Blanco delivered a two-out single to score Sandoval...

Still No Support For Vogelsong In Giants’ 2-0 Loss to Diamondbacks

It’s the same story, different day: Ryan Vogelsong went out and pitched another quality outing, but the lack of Giants offense resulted in San Francisco’s tenth shutout of the season and a very quiet clubhouse after the game. With the exception of a fourth-inning home run off the bat of Aaron Hill, and a later RBI double from Gerardo Parra, Vogelsong pitched a strong six and...

Giants Tickets 32% Below Season Average For Series Vs DBacks

The San Francisco Giants just dropped three of four to their Bay Area rival Oakland A’s. They’re now a game behind the Los Angeles Dodgers for first in the NL West. While at one point the Giants were looked at as the best team in the majors, they’re now behind several teams with a 50-42 record, and a modest + 16 run differential. But the San Francisco Giants schedule gives...

Oakland Pitching Stifles Giants Struggling Offense

The Giants opened up the Bay Bridge series by once again being on the wrong side of a shut-out as they fell to the Oakland Athletics 5-0. It took a few innings, but the Oakland offense finally broke through in the bottom of the fifth. Craig Gentry was awarded first base to lead off the inning after he was hit by a pitch. Ryan Vogelsong and Bruce Bochy didn’t agree and challenged...

Giants on Minus End of NL West and Wild Card Math

That the San Francisco Giants 2014 season has taken a major nosedive isn’t surprising. When we look back on this season, the surprising thing is that this team went 36-20 in March/April/May, and specifically had a stunning 19-9 May. One of the strangest things we see when an MLB team over-performs in the first two months of the season is that when they finally begin performing...

Cardinals send Waino to mound for retribution vs. Giants

Facing Adam Wainwright is unlikely to make offensive consistency any easier for the San Francisco Giants, but they'll certainly take their own hitting over the Cardinals' recent inferiority at the plate. The Giants will try for their sixth win against the Cardinals in seven games Wednesday night as the clubs continue a three-game series at AT&T Park. San Francisco (47...

Cincinnati takes their Red hot offense to San Francisco

The San Francisco Giants have let a comfortable NL West lead vanish and the starting rotation definitely shares some of the blame. Perhaps it can find some inspiration in Tim Lincecum's latest performance. First up is Ryan Vogelsong, who will try to win back-to-back starts for the first time in over a month when he takes the hill in the opener of a four-game set against the Cincinnati...

Daily SP Rankings: Weekend, Jun 21-23

And we’re back with another weekend trifecta! On Saturday, Ryan Vogelsong pitches at the Diamondbacks. Though he’s been surprisingly effective for most of this season, this is a start where you have to bench him. His fly ball approach won’t work in that park. On Sunday, Max Scherzer draws the Indians. Despite his abhorrent start last time out, I have no major concerns about...

Nationals Offense Overpowers San Francisco in Giants’ 9-2 Loss

The Giants may be tied in the league for come-from-behind victories this season, but there were no comeback threats on Monday night as the San Francisco Giants fell to the Washington Nationals 9-2. Ryan Vogelsong didn’t have his command from the beginning, missing corners and giving up four runs over the first three innings. Two doubles in the first scored the first Washington...

Vogelsong contains Reds, Giants win 3-2

For the first time since 2012, the Giants enjoyed a handshake line on the field after a regular season game in Cincinnati. The Giants came back from two runs down with a three-run rally in the sixth inning, as home runs by Michael Morse and Juan Perez propelled San Francisco to a 3-2 victory. The win snapped a four-game losing streak at Great American Ball Park. The Giants played...

Two Out Home Runs Help Vogelsong Battle In Giants’ 3-2 Win Over Reds

A strong battle by Ryan Vogelsong and home runs – one a bit more expected than the other – helped the Giants come back and take a 3-2 win against the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday afternoon. Vogelsong started a bit shaky but was able to hold the Reds scoreless up until the fifth inning. It was there that Todd Frazier hit a home run on a line drive to left field, his 11th of the...

Reds building on season-high winning streak

Cincinnati's offense is starting to come around after a dormant stretch. Given how inconsistent Ryan Vogelsong has been, it's anyone's guess how the Reds will fare against the San Francisco right-hander. Cincinnati looks to build on its highest-scoring game in a month and extend a season-high winning streak to five games, while Vogelsong tries to bounce back from a subpar...

Comeback Kings? Giants Take Game One in St. Louis

They’ve done it again. Just when you wanted to count them out of a game, the San Francisco Giants came from behind once again, defeating the St. Louis Cardinals 6-5 to open a seven-game road trip. The Cardinals got on the board first against Ryan Vogelsong. Matt Carpenter singled to open up the bottom of the first, and after Vogelsong struck out Kolten Wong and Matt Holliday,...

Garcia takes the ball as Cards open a four-game set against the Giants

After a rough first few starts, Ryan Vogelsong has been nearly untouchable over the last month. If Jaime Garcia's latest performance is any indication, he may be able to give the St. Louis Cardinals a boost going forward. Looking to extend his streak of 13 2/3 scoreless innings, Vogelsong opposes Garcia as the major league-leading San Francisco Giants open a four-game series...

Resurgent Vogelsong, Sandoval lift Giants over Twins

The clubhouse that now houses the team with the best record in the majors has become a repository of "stuff."

The starting position players are wearing superhero T-shirts under their uniforms, purchased by Pablo Sandoval, who was...

Recap: Vogelstrong And Sandoval Home Run Support Gives Giants 2-1 Win

Ryan Vogelsong didn’t get much run support on Saturday night, but he got just enough as he held the Minnesota Twins scoreless over 6.2 innings in the San Francisco Giants’ 2-1 win at AT&T Park. Vogelsong came just one out short of matching his last start of seven scoreless innings against the Miami Marlins, as the starter held the Twins to three runs and one walk while striking...

Pitcher Profile: One Last Vogelsong Before Keuchel

I know, I know.  I promised everyone Dallas Keuchel, but he's pitching tonight!  His last start was so long ago that Jose Abreu still seemed like a good guy to trade for if someone wasn't selling too high (ack!).  So long ago that Jay Z seemed to still love his little sister-in-law! But do not fret, I promise unless there's a Noah-type monsoon that floods out four...

Vogelsong’s Start Shaken By Missed Play At The Plate In Giants’ 5-0 Loss To Braves

A gorgeous night and a strong start from Ryan Vogelsong were derailed by a potentially simple play at the plate as the San Francisco Giants fell to the Atlanta Braves 5-0 on Tuesday night.
