Ryan Vogelsong's one regular season start vs. St. Louis last year: 7 IP, 0 ER, 3 H, 3 BB, 3 K, 15-0 Giants victory (USA TODAY IMAGES)

It's Ryan Vogelsong vs. Shelby Miller in Game 2 of the three-game series between the Giants and Cardinals Saturday afternoon.

In Game 2 of the 2012 NLCS, the Giants tagged Miller for two runs in 1.1 innings of relief work in San Francisco's 7-1 victory.

Miller responded with a solid performance in Game 6, allowing one hit and striking out two batters in two innings out of the bullpen. (the Giants won that game 6-1)

Vogelsong was the winning pitcher in both Games 2 and 6, surrendering just two earned runs combined, while striking out 13 Cardinals hitters over 14 spectacular innings.

The 35-year old veteran will be facing a St. Louis lineup that was shut out by Barry Zito, Jeremy Affeldt, and Sergio Romo Friday, registering just three hits total.
