Stat Line of the Night — 8/25/2013 — Ryan Vogelsong
It had been over three months since Ryan Vogelsong had last earned a victory on the mound, but that streak of futility came to an end following a terrific performance against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday.
The Giants’ righty was nearly flawless, allowing just two hits and one walk while striking out five over the course of eight shutout innings, as the Giants emerged with the 4-0 win.
This season has been a struggle for Vogelsong, as he now owns a 3-4 record to go along with an abysmal 5.58 ERA. Hopefully yesterday’s outing will mark the beginning of a solid end to the 36-year-old’s 2013 campaign. He earns “The Stat Line of the Night” for Sunday, August 25, 2013.
