Snubbed Vogelsong has impressive stats
PITTSBURGH -- Starter Ryan Vogelsong entered Saturday leading the National League with a 2.26 ERA. The last Giants pitcher to lead the league in ERA at the All-Star break was Atlee Hammaker, who did so in 1983 with a 1.70 mark.

Of course, Vogelsong is not an All-Star. The last pitcher to lead his league in ERA by the break and not make the All-Star team was the Marlins' Josh Johnson, who in 2006 paced the NL with a 2.21 ERA.

Vogelsong had thrown at least six innings in all 15 of his starts this season entering Saturday. It is the Giants' longest such streak since 1983, when Hammaker had 21 straight starts with six innings or more.
