Giants were clobbered in Colorado, 11-3.
LA lost at San Diego, 10-7.
Giants at Colorado; 6:40 pm local (8:40 EDT) start at Coors Field. Chris Heston tries for his 12th win while another lefty, the familiar Jorge De La Rosa, opposes. He's had one start against the Giants this year, also at home and back in May, and it was a pretty good one though the Giants ended up winning in extra innings. As for Heston, let's hope third time's a charm as he was hit hard in both earlier starts at Coors.
LA continues at San Diego. Without Greinke and Kershaw, they're a .500 club, and it's Mike Bolsinger tonight.
Last Night's Game
Why Ryan Vogelsong had to wait until now to uncork the worst start by any Giants pitcher this season, and perhaps the worst of his career, is a mystery that may help explain why so many fans refer to the "baseball gods" when they run out of adjectives. Nine Rockies marched to the plate in the first inning, four of them scoring, and after three more came racing around the bases to open the fourth, "Vogey" was outta there, and so were the Giants. Perhaps he should have suited up and played in the field; Vogelsong also provided two-thirds of the Giants' scoring with a home run, the first of his career. Note: if you're gonna emulate Madison Bumgarner, bring your pitching game as well. We hate to rag on one of our favorites, but we're at the point where this six-game losing streak will completely end the Giants' chances if it's not arrested like, now.
