Zito earns Game 4 start; Vogelsong confident
Bags Barry Zito has waited a lot of years to make a post season start with the Giants. He might get his chance at this thing goes to game four yet they still have to win game three obviously to push this series to game four but Barry Zito is tenure as a giant really has just been. So full of ups and downs so many times. That you thought maybe he was seeing the end of the line as -- in his Giants career regardless of how much money he was making in spring training he was getting knocked around -- he was getting knocked around toward the end you wonder how is this guy even going to be competitive against Major League hitters and then. What happens they get swept in Arizona to begin the year they don't Coors Field of all places. And he throws a shut out so you know Zito did hang in there in 2010 when he was bypassed for the post season roster he did. Continue to throw stay ready the entire time -- initially lauded him for that and if he does get a game four start then it will be very deserving of it certainly. And he has pitched well in two starts against the reds this season of course a guy who can help him get that start. Is game three starter Ryan -- song and bogey certainly not lacking for confidence when he takes them. So I think when you look at Ryan Vogel -- you look at the way you finished the season just a very. Don't give in mentality in and throwing really premium stuff I mean the scouts are really buzzing about the way. He threw a Dodger Stadium 93 miles an hour everything moving around the strikes with all his pitches aggressively going after hitters. Yeah definitely had a bad seven star run there in. August and September and said he was a little unlucky and in addition to battling his mechanics but. I think you're gonna see confident pitcher out there and more than anything you're gonna see a pitcher who really doesn't surrender anything when he's on the mound in the opponent really -- to. A deserve everything they get against him and when your backs are against the wall that's the kind of person you wanna send out there to. Oh -- saying he's not looking at this is trying to save the season he's just going out trying to do his thing. And when a -- more from Cincinnati coming up in a bit but for now we send you back to our sports net central studious.
