Saturday afternoon, the Arizona Diamondbacks will take the field behind Wade Miley as they square off against the San Francisco Giants and Ryan Vogelsong. Miley makes his 20th start as Vogelsong makes his 19th.
Wade Miley picked up the win in his last outing and that took his record to 4 - 6 with a 4.43 ERA. In the win, Miley went 6.2 innings and surrendered just a run and 5 hits. He walked a batter and struck out 8. The win came behind 5 straight no-decisions for Miley and was the first win for him since early May. Last season, Miley was 10 - 10 with a 3.55 ERA in 33 starts.
In 2013, Miley was 0 - 1 with a 3.06 ERA in 3 starts against the Giants. He will have to stay away from San Francisco's Buster Posey because Posey is batting .529 with a homer and 5 RBIs when facing Miley.
Ryan Vogelsong dropped his 3rd straight game the last time out and that lowered his record to 5 -6 with a 3.92 ERA. In the loss, Vogelsong gave up 3 runs on 5 hits in just 5.2 innings of work. He walked 2 and struck out 4 as he threw 100 pitches. Vogelsong is in the middle of a rough patch but he has already won more games than he did in 2013 when he went 4 - 6 with a 5.73 ERA in 19 starts.
Last season, Vogelsong was 0 - 1 with a 5.60 ERA in 3 starts against the Diamondbacks. This season, he has a win and a no-decision against Arizona in 2 starts.
