Vogelsong Took Long Journey to World Series Start

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Ryan Vogelsong stood on the cut grass at AT&T Park in his crisp San Francisco Giants uniform, giving an interview for Japanese broadcaster NHK in English. No need for an interpreter.

The backdrop on the scoreboard said it all: World Series.

Halfway around the world and back, Vogelsong’s journey is ready to go global. The resilient right-hander will start Game 3 in Detroit opposite Anibal Sanchez on Saturday night looking to pitch the Giants one win away from another championship and cap a comeback that has become more improbable each time out.
