There was some thought that the Giants might scratch Ryan Vogelsong for his Game 4 start in the World Series if they lost Game 3. They did, by a 3-2 margin, but manager Bruce Bochy is sticking with Vogelsong as Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports. Madison Bumgarner will not start on short rest, instead staying on schedule to start Game 5 on Sunday.
In two post-season starts this year, Vogelsong has allowed five runs on nine hits and four walks with five strikeouts in 8 2/3 innings.
Yusmeiro Petit will likely be the Giants’ first line of defense should Vogelsong falter early in the game.
