San Francisco Giant: Ryan Vogelsong inspires former teammates to win

San Francisco Giant: Ryan Vogelsong inspires former teammates to win”

Vogelsong, who returned to Major League Baseball in 2011 after a five-year hiatus, played the next five seasons for the Giants. The 40 year old put a bow on his 12-year career, spanning from 2000 to 2016. He was honored today by coming out to the mound to throw three ceremonial warmup pitches before manager Bruce Bochy went to get him and bring in starter Chris Stratton to replace him.

It was fitting to send Vogelsong into retirement with a win, who won many big games for the Giants.

Stratton (3-3) struck out four and gave up two runs, five hits and a walk. He was a force as a starting pitcher in 2011 and 2012, combining to win 27 games with just 16 loses during that time. He also had the first of three singles leading off San Francisco's three-run fifth and scored on a bases-loaded walk.

Fan favorite Ryan Vogelsong retired as a Giant in a ceremony before the game. He made the team and served as a key cog to a pair of World Series championships in 2012 and 2014.
