Vargas held the O's to one run in 5 1/3 innings on Oct. 15 in the ALCS. He earned the Game 4 win to lift the Royals to the World Series. Other than an exhibition game in 2010, Vargas has never pitched at AT&T Park in his nine-year career.
Typically a postseason force, Vogelsong struggled against St. Louis in the NLCS, lasting just three innings in Game 4. He entered that outing having allowed one run or fewer in five straight starts to begin his postseason career -- an MLB record.
