SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco Giants right-hander Ryan Vogelsong broke his pitching hand when he fouled off a pitch in the fifth inning Monday night.

Vogelsong had a 6-0 lead against the Washington Nationals when he got hurt. He grimaced in pain and grabbed his hand after the swing. Manager Bruce Bochy and a member of the training staff came out to check on him, and Vogelsong quickly left the game to a warm ovation from the sellout crowd.

The former All-Star was mired in a six-start losing stretch dating to his win against the Cubs at Wrigley Field on April 11 in his second start. But he appeared back on track Monday night with five scoreless innings of three-hit ball.
