Wednesday afternoon, Ryan Vogelsong (8 - 9, 3.73 ERA) will take the hill for the San Francisco Giants as they take on Christian Bergman (1 - 2, 5.74 ERA) and the Colorado Rockies. Vogelsong will make his 28th start as Bergman makes his 6th.
Ryan Vogelsong picked up the victory in his last outing after holding his opponents to 2 runs and 4 hits through 7 innings. He walked a batter and struck out 7. It was the first victory for Vogelsong since the beginning of August. Despite some solid performances, wins have been hard to come by for Vogelsong and he is just 3 - 4 in his last 10 outings. In 2013, Vogelsong was 4 - 6 with a 5.73 ERA in 19 starts.
Last season, Vogelsong didn't get the decision in his only start against the Rockies. So far in 2014, Vogelsong is 0 - 1 in 2 starts against Colorado.
Christian Bergman gave a good performance in his last start but he still didn't factor into the decision. In 5.1 innings of work, Bergman allowed just a run on 2 hits. He struck out 5 but he also walked 5. Bergman had only allowed 4 walks in his other 4 starts combined. Before getting the call to the Majors, Bergman was 4 - 4 with a 3.84 ERA in 12 starts at Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Bergman faced the Giants in his 2nd start but he ended up without the decision after allowing 3 runs and 8 hits (including 2 homers) in 6 innings.
