He was solid for the next two innings, but fell apart in the fifth. After getting two outs, Vogelsong allowed a walk and a single. With two men on, Nolan Arenado belted a three-run homer.

After he left the game, the bullpen came completely apart, giving up five more runs in the sixth en route to a blowout loss. Vogelsong owns a 3.78 ERA and 121:43 K:BB ratio in 150 innings. He's scheduled to face the Brewers Friday.


Report: Cubs, Giants set to continue Tuesday game Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) The Giants have prevailed in a protest of how Tuesday's called game was handled, and Tuesday's 2-0 Cubs win is set to be continued Thursday, picking up where things left off in the bottom of the fifth inning, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The game was delayed for more than four hours after the grounds crew was unable to get the tarp completely on the infield before it was drenched, with the umpires ultimately deciding to call the game and award Chicago with the win late into the night. Tsuyoshi Wada (win) and Ryan Vogelsong (loss) were the pitchers of record in the game, but if it's continued, those decisions are up in the air.


Tsuyoshi Wada wins, Ryan Vogelsong loses in rain-shortened affair


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Tuesday's game between the Cubs and Giants was called as final after five innings, with the Cubs coming out on top, 2-0.

Cubs pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada got the win after throwing five shutout innings, scattering six pitches and striking out three batters. Ryan Vogelsong took the loss for the Giants, allowing two runs on three hits and a pair of walks over four innings, while striking out four before the rain came.  


Ryan Vogelsong allows two runs before long delay Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) 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.

The grounds crew had trouble getting the tarp in place once the game was stopped due to rain, leading to an extremely long delay as they tried to make the field playable after the rain stopped. Vogelsong is scheduled to face the Nationals Sunday.


Ryan Vogelsong allows two runs vs. White Sox


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2014) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong didn't factor into the decision Tuesday, giving up two earned runs on three hits and two walks in seven innings and striking out five in his team's 3-2, 10-inning loss to the White Sox.

Vogelsong served up a two-run home run in the top of the first inning, and his offense wasn't able to figure out Chris Sale by the time the San Francisco starter called it a night. Vogelsong has delivered three straight quality starts, and he now owns a 3.71 ERA and 114:37 K:BB ratio in 140 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Cubs next Tuesday.

Vogelsong (7-8) was spotted three runs by his offense in the top of the first, but he gave one back on a solo home run to the leadoff batter in the bottom half of the inning. He pitched well after that, despite multiple guys reaching base in four of his five remaining innings. Vogelsong owns a 3.77 ERA and 109:35 K:BB ratio in 133 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the White Sox Tuesday.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong bounced back and went the distance for the win Friday night against the Mets in New York, improving to 6-8 on the year. The right-hander permitted one run on two hits and one walk while striking out five over the full nine innings in a 5-1 victory.

Vogelsong lowered his ERA from 3.94 to 3.74 after Friday's masterpiece. Over his last two starts covering 15 innings, he has allowed only three earned runs. He will look to keep rolling Wednesday at Milwaukee.


Ryan Vogelsong takes another loss Saturday vs. Dodgers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong was hung with a loss Saturday after giving up four runs (two earned) on eight hits and one walk in six innings and striking out four in his team's 5-0 defeat against the Dodgers.

Vogelsong (5-8) is 0-5 in his last six starts, and his offense has failed to score a single run of support in four of his five July outings. The one time his team scored more than one run during his last six games, Vogelsong lasted just three innings. He owns a 3.94 ERA and 101:33 K:BB ratio in 118 2/3 innings.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Vogelsong (5-7) received exactly zero runs of support while on the mound for the fourth straight start, giving him yet another loss in a well-pitched game. He surrendered a solo home run in the fourth inning and another run after giving up a ground-rule double to begin the seventh.

Ryan Vogelsong gets little help in second straight loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2014) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong took his second tough-luck loss in a row Wednesday, in a 2-0 loss to the Cardinals.

Vogelsong tossed seven strong innings this time around, after he was forced to settle for a loss in six quality innings the last time out. He limited the Cardinals to two runs on six hits, while striking out eight batters and walking just one in the loss.

Vogelsong falls to 5-5 with the loss, despite his ERA dropping to 3.86 in 98 innings. The Giants have managed just three runs in his consecutive losses, so he will hope for better luck when takes on the Athletics Monday. 


Offense lets Ryan Vogelsong down in quality start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2014) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong tossed the ball well, but got little help in a 3-1 loss to the Reds Thursday.

Vogelsong twirled his finest start since late May, but it wasn't enough as his offense provided little help. He limited the Reds to just one run on five hits in six innings, while striking out seven batters and walking none, but left in line for a loss in spite of his solid pitching.

Vogelsong dropped his ERA below 4.00 for the season with the start, as he is now 5-4 with a 3.96 ERA in 91 innings. His next start is set for Wednesday against the Cardinals.

Ryan Vogelsong keeps upping his value


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/5/2014) You probably know that with his latest gem at Cincinnati Wednesday, Giants starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong has a 2.05 ERA in his last eight starts. But you may not know that with a career-high nine strikeouts in that game, he's averaging 8.4 strikeouts per nine innings during that stretch.

I'll admit to falling into the trap of lumping him in with pitch-to-contact types like Jason Vargas and Bronson Arroyo whose final numbers figure to be strong but whose limited upside from start to start makes them not so appealing in shallower leagues. But that's really not the case. In 2011 and 2012, the years that put him on the map in Fantasy, Vogelsong averaged 7.2 strikeout per nine innings, which is just a little below league average.

No, he's not exactly an ace in waiting, but with that kind of strikeout rate, as long as he continues down this path in ERA and WHIP, Vogelsong is about as valuable as Doug Fister in shallower leagues.

And if you drop Fister in such a league, chances are you're not getting him back.


Ryan Vogelsong strikes out nine in win vs. Reds


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2014) Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong picked up a win for the third time in four starts Wednesday, giving up two earned runs on seven hits and one walk in 6 1/3 innings while striking out nine in his team's 3-2 victory over the Reds.

Vogelsong (4-2) delivered his highest strikeout total in a game since the 2012 postseason Wednesday while limiting the Reds to a pair of runs in the third inning. He owns a 3.39 ERA and 60:23 K:BB ratio in 69 innings as he heads into Monday's matchup with the Nationals.


Ryan Vogelsong stumbles in no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/30/2014) Giants starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong wasn't at his sharpest Thursday, as he settled for a no-decision in a 6-5 win over the Cardinals.

Vogelsong left the game in line for a loss, after allowing four runs in 6 1/3 innings of work, but the offense and bullpen helped bail him out. He scattered seven hits and three walks -- his highest total in five starts -- while striking out five on 101 pitches.

Vogelsong remains 3-2 on the season, though his ERA rose to 3.45. His next start is set for Wednesday in Cincinnati.
