Vogelsong picked up a win on Saturday, going 5.2 innings and allowing just two runs in the 11-2 win over the Reds.

Vogelsong struggled a bit with his control, allowing four walks and six hits in his 5.2 innings. He was cruising until the sixth inning, where he allowed his two runs, and the bullpen bailed him out with guys left on second and third. The start is promising though as he has struggled this season to the tune of a 5.31 ERA. Vogelsong has the nightmare matchup in his next start on Thursday when he travels to Coors Field to take on the Rockies.

Vogelsong was excellent again on Sunday as he allowed just one run across seven innings, striking out five, scattering four hits and walking not a single Malins hitter.

After a miserable start to the season Vogelsong has hit his stride of late, tossing three quality starts in his last four outings. His ERA still sits at an ugly 5.67 on the season, but he will carry this recent momentum into his next scheduled start against the Reds on Saturday.

Vogelsong (1-2) turned in his best performance of the season Tuesday, tossing seven innings of shutout ball while striking out four in the win over the Padres.

It was hard to see this magnificent start coming after Vogelsong was hammered by these very Padres on April 11. He was definitely aided by the cold San Francisco night, as he surrendered almost twice as many flyouts than groundouts Tuesday. Vogelsong's next start is a favorable matchup at home against the Marlins, but he has been too inconsistent this season to trust in all but the deepest leagues.

Vogelsong lasted only three innings, giving up six runs on five hits and a walk to go with two strikeouts against the Dodgers on Wednesday.

Vogelsong gave up first inning home runs to Joc Pederson, Adrian Gonzalez and Andre Ethier, then gave up a solo shot to Jimmy Rollins in the third. It was the second time in 146 major league starts that Vogelsong surrendered four homers in a game. He did it on September 3, 2014, in a 9-2 loss to the Colorado Rockies in Coors Field. Vogelsong, who replaced Jake Peavy in the rotation, will be back on the mound in his next scheduled start Tuesday against the Padres.

Vogelsong is at risk of having his next scheduled start skipped, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Vogelsong was originally pencilled in for a Wednesday start, but after Sunday's postponement, manager Bruce Bochy will push his entire rotation forward a day. This could leave Vogelsong on the chopping block, but the team has yet to make an official announcement.

Vogelsong was used in long-relief of Madison Bumgarner on Saturday, giving up five runs (four earned) on nine hits over 3.2 innings. He walked one and struck out two.

After Bumgarner was chased from Saturday's game, Vogelsong came in to the game simply to eat up innings. By using Vogelsong in this role, it has all but guaranteed that rookie pitcher, Chris Heston, will get the start on Monday.
