Ryan Vogelsong allows two runs before long delay Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:55 am ET) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong surrendered two earned runs on three hits and two walks in four innings while striking out four Tuesday before his team's game against the Cubs was halted by a long delay.

Zack Greinke may miss Thursday's scheduled start


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:52 am ET) Dodgers manager Don Mattingly indicated after Tuesday's game that pitcher Zack Greinke wasn't a certainty to make his scheduled start Thursday, the Orange County Register reports.

Tsuyoshi Wada goes five scoreless innings before delay Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:49 am ET) Cubs pitchr Tsuyoshi Wada gave up six hits in five scoreless innings while striking out three Tuesday before his team's game against the Giants went into a long delay in the bottom of the fifth inning.

The rain came down for about 15 minutes at Wrigley Field, but the grounds crew was unable to bring the tarp in before the field got soaked. That led to a massive delay that extended after the rain stopped as the grounds crew tried to get the field in a playable condition. If Wada's line stands, he'll own a 2.75 ERA and 33:10 K:BB ratio in 39 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to pitch again Sunday against the Orioles.

He recorded his second hit of the night on the game's final play, as the lead runner was ruled out on a tag after a review of the second baseman's single. Gyorko has hit .203/.256/.342 with nine home runs and 44 RBI in 281 at-bats.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:40 am ET) Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen earned his 35th save Tuesday despite giving up one earned run on two hits and a walk in his team's 8-6 victory over the Padres.
