Giants Vs. Diamondbacks: Ryan Vogelsong, Ian Kennedy Square Off

The San Francisco Giants have had to come from behind in four of their last six victories to get the job done, and hope that a solid start from Ryan Vogelsong can earn them another W on Tuesday.

Vogelsong (12-7, 3.02 ERA) allowed four runs in six innings of work in his last start, still earning himself the W as part of a 8-4 win over Houston. He gave up just one run in six innings of his only meeting with Arizona this year, eventually taking a no decision.

Arizona will counter with Ian Kennedy (12-11, 4.27), who has won the last five starts against the Giants, owning a 1.58 ERA in his last seven outings against them. He is also 3-0 with a 1.17 ERA in his past four outings in China Basin.

One man who could shut down Kennedy is Buster Posey, who is 8-20 lifetime against him and is batting .429 with five RBIs during a recent five-game hitting streak.

First pitch is set for 7:15 p.m PT with coverage on CSN Bay Area and KNBR 680 AM.
