Vogelsong (7-9) took the loss in Tuesday's rain-shortened game against the Cubs, giving up two runs on three hits and a walk over four frames.

Vogelsong put himself in an early hole by serving up a two-run homer to Anthony Rizzo, and an unplayable field following a four-hour, 34-minute rain delay in the top of the fifth prevented the Giants from mounting a comeback. Though circumstances outside of his control prevented him from doing so, Vogelsong's streak of three consecutive quality starts came to an end Tuesday.

It was an odd night at the ballpark, with the Giants and Phillies combining for 29 hits, 26 of them singles. All 11 that Vogelsong allowed were one-base hits. He didn't walk anyone and he struck out three, but there just wasn't any escape for him tonight. He was mostly just fortunate to end up with his ERA relatively intact.
