Giants vs. Cardinals score update: Vogelsong strong through four innings

Ryan Vogelsong has settled into a groove for the San Francisco Giants and the St. Louis Cardinals have been the victim so far. Vogelsong has faced 13 batters and has retired 12 as he is in complete control for the Giants after four innings. The Giants have helped him at the plate as well, giving him a 5-0 lead.

Vogelsong has struck out seven of the 12 batters he has faced on 58 pitches. He only gave up a first inning walk to Matt Carpenter that is preventing him from having a perfect game. Vogelsong also has helped himself at the plate by driving in a run and scoring a run in the second inning when the Giants scored four times.

Vogelsong has a ways to go to reach the single-game strikeouts record for the postseason. Bob Gibson struck out 17 batters in the first game of the 1968 World Series.

The Cardinals have allowed three unearned runs so far.
