Vogelsong, 3 Relievers Throw 5-hitter, Giants Beat Ms 7-0
SEATTLE (AP) — Ryan Vogelsong and three relievers combined on a five-hitter to give San Francisco its major league-leading 11th shutout, a 7-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Thursday night.
Vogelsong (5-5), allowed three singles over 6 2-3 innings, striking out six and walking two as the offensively challenged Mariners were held to two runs or less for the 26th time in 67 games.
San Francisco capitalized on a botched double-play attempt for three second-inning runs off Mike Montgomery (1-2), who allowed four runs and seven hits in 7 1-3 innings.
The Giants loaded the bases with one out on a walk to Brandon Belt and consecutive singles by Andrew Susac and Justin Maxwell.
Joaquin Arias bounced to second baseman Dustin Ackley for what looked like a possible inning-ending double play, but shortstop Brad Miller dropped the ball on the attempted relay after the force at second, allowing Belt to score and sending Susac to third.
