Pitchers ahead of the hitters

Man, it looks like Ryan Vogelsong is ready! Six shutout innings -- against the Brew Crew, who can really hit. Well, Vogey can really pitch. Here's from Chris Haf's story -

Vogelsong, making his initial appearance for the Giants since ending his World Baseball Classic stint with Team USA, became San Francisco's first pitcher to last six innings this spring. The right-hander surrendered three hits while issuing one walk and striking out seven.
"I wasn't trying to reinvent the wheel," said Vogelsong, who threw 60 strikes in 82 pitches and went to only one three-ball count. "I was just trying to throw quality strikes and pound the zone."
Vogelsong, who sustained a perfect game for 3 2/3 innings before Martin Maldonado beat out an infield single, encountered trouble in the fifth. Caleb Gindl doubled with one out, and Sean Halton drew a two-out walk. Vogelsong responded by striking out Narveson.
