Vogelsong the stopper

Just when it looked like the Giants would never win another game, Ryan Vogelsong stopped a 5-game losing streak and continued making the case for being an All-Star. He's been the best Giants pitcher this season. Henry Schulman points out that Vogelsong's verging into Marichal territory --
One night after the bullpen threw 8 2/3 innings following Madison Bumgarner's epic first-inning collapse, Vogelsong gave the relievers most of the night off, which he has done frequently.Vogelsong held Minnesota to one unearned run, which scored in his seventh and final inning. That made him the first Giant since Jason Schmidt in 2006 to allow two or fewer runs over nine consecutive starts. If Vogelsong does it again in Chicago next week, he will tie Juan Marichal's San Francisco record.
