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- game set.

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.
