Vogelsong shrugs off previous bad outing
SAN DIEGO -- Ryan Vogelsong continued to insist that his performance last Monday against Washington may have seemed shocking, but wasn't alarming.

Vogelsong allowed eight runs and nine hits in 2 2/3 innings as the Nationals shredded the Giants, 14-2. It marked the first time this year that Vogelsong lasted less than six innings and surrendered more than four runs in a game. But he pointed out that his pitching wasn't as horrid as his statistical line would suggest.

Vogelsong noted that seven of the hits he yielded were singles and that four didn't leave the infield.

"Obviously, you don't want it to happen," said Vogelsong, who faces San Diego in Sunday's series finale. "But it's not a game I have to try to reinvent the wheel after. I just needed one ball to be inches to the left or right and be a double play and I get out of it."
