SAN FRANCISCO, CA - Ryan Vogelsong had another dominating
home outing Tuesday and helped the Giants further tighten the race against the
sputtering Dodgers in the NL West.
The 34-year-old spun seven innings of shutout ball, while Melky Cabrera
smacked a solo homer as part of a two-run fourth inning, as the Giants blanked
the Dodgers for the second straight night, 2-0, in the middle test of a three-
Vogelsong (7-3) scattered seven hits and walked one for the Giants, who are
just a game back of the Dodgers and have won 12 of their past 17 home tilts
against their fierce rivals.
A winner in each of his past four starts at AT&T Park, Clayton Kershaw (5-4)
was charged with two runs on eight hits and two walks in six innings for Los
Angeles, which has dropped seven of its last eight contests.
