SAN FRANCISCO -- Ryan Vogelsong worked seven shutout innings and received ample offensive support Tuesday night as the San Francisco Giants lengthened their three winning streaks to five overall, eight at home and three via the shutout, with a 6-0 victory over the San Diego Padres.
Having allowed four homers and six runs in three innings against the Dodgers in his start last Wednesday, Vogelsong (1-2) underwent a complete reversal. He surrendered three hits, all singles, to the National League's highest scoring team, which left the bases loaded in the sixth inning. That occurred after Matt Kemp's bid for a three-run homer died in the glove of left fielder Nori Aoki, who made a leaping catch a couple steps in front of the wall.
