Vogelsong's 17 game streak

Chris Quick at Bay City Ball has an interesting post about yesterday's 15-0 vic in St. Louis...

Tonight, the Giants scored 15 runs. Generally, any night that the Giants score more than four runs is something to write about, however, the real story was another excellent Ryan Vogelsong start. Vogelsong’s line: 7 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 3 SO. Ho-hum, really. It goes without saying — but I’ll say it anyways — Vogelsong has turned himself into the baseball story of, maybe, the past decade. What he’s done, what he’s doing, is fairy tale stuff. If the story isn’t absurd enough for you, consider this factoid: Tonight’s game marks the 17th straight start in which Vogelsong has pitched at least six innings of baseball while allowing three runs or fewer. That ties him for the franchise mark with Gaylord Perry’s steak from 1967-1968 and Hal Schumacher’s streak in 1935.

Over the past two seasons — not including tonight’s start — Vogelsong has the following pitching line: 315.2 IP, 272 H, 90 ER, 25 HR, 106 BB, 241 SO, 2.57 ERA, 135 ERA+.
