For Tuesday’s game the Giants start Ryan Vogelsong who has allowed 28 hits and 20 earned runs while striking out 17 over 19.1 innings for a 0-2 record and a 9.31 ERA.
The San Diego Padres just couldn’t get any offense going as they fell to the Giants on Monday. Justin Upton and Yangervis Solarte each had hits and Wil Myers reached via walk as the Padres failed to score on two hits. Starting pitcher Tyson Ross allowed seven hits and two runs while striking out five over 7.0 innings to take the loss and fall to 1-3 for the season.

San Francisco is 5-0 in their last five games, 5-10 against a right-handed starter, and 4-0 in Vogelsong’s last four starts. San Diego is 7-2 in Tuesday games, 9-20 in their last 29 road games, and 3-7 in Cashner’s last 10 road starts. San Diego is 9-25 in their last 34 games in San Francisco.
The Giants are red hot right now and though Cashner has the better numbers, he hasn’t found a way to win so will look for the value on the other side of this.
