Jeff Suppan had a decent outing today as he lasted four innings allowing seven hits, two runs, and two strikeouts, although he did allow a run to score in a wild pitch in the first. Suppan was followed by Ryan Vogelsong who went for three innings allowing four hits, two runs, one walk, and three strikeouts; Vogelsong, like Suppan, is a contender to make the regular season squad and wil both get a lot of work for the rest of the preseason. Javier Lopez pitched a perfect eighth, but Guillermo Mota gave up back-to-back homers to ex-Giant Eugenio Velez and Xavier Paul in the ninth for some Dodger insurance.
The Giants was sparse today, coming from a 5th inning double by Mike Fontenot that scored Aaron Rowand and Travis Ishikawa, and a Ryan Rohlinger triple in the eighth that scored Chirs Stewart.
The Giants will host the Kansas City Royals tomorrow at Scottsdale Stadium with the first pitch slated for 1:05 p.m. Coverage can be found on KNBR 680 with the pregame show starting at 12:50.
