The San Francisco Giants gave the fans something to remember on Memorial Day against the Arizona Diamondbacks, and are hoping to do the same on Tuesday as Ryan Vogelsong takes the bump.

Vogelsong (3-2 2.50) has been outstanding in May, earning all three of his victories including a 1.56 ERA in five starts this month. He'll be facing off against joe Saunders (3-3 3.79) who earned his first win of the month in his last outing against the Dodgers, throwing 6.1 innings of four-run ball, though was aided greatly by some potent offense.

Speaking of potent offense, Arizona is batting a team-wide .330 (68-for-206) over their last six games, while the Giants are 11-7 during their 20 game stretch in 20 days, scoring at least three runs in their last eight games straight and 14 of their last 18.

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