Rockies rumpus

Bruce Bochy said the plan remains to pitch struggling RHP Ryan Vogelsong on Monday. “I talked to Vogey for quite a while, and he said, ‘Hey, if you need me in the pen the next couple of days, I’m available,’” Bochy said. “He’s earned some things, including a longer leash. That’s something he’s earned.” ... Giants LHP Madison Bumgarner (4-1) will take the mound today against the Rockies, who will counter with LHP Jorge De La Rosa (4-3). ... Nolan Arenado made a diving grab at third in the eighth to throw out INF Brett Pill.
