PITTSBURGH -- Ryan Vogelsong feared his career might be over when he took a fastball to the face from the Rockies Jordan Lyles on May 23 and sustained facial fractures that necessitated surgery and a three-night hospital stay.However, the 39-year-old right-hander has looked sharp in his first two starts since coming off the disabled list. He took a tough-luck loss Wednesday night when the San Diego Padres beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-0.Vogelsong (1-2) gave up two unearned run and three hits in six innings while striking out five and walking one. He returned last Thursday and allowed one run in six innings against the Braves but did not factor in the decision in a game the Pirates lost.He pitched very well again and gave us a chance to win the game, Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. He was very impressive.Prior to being injured, Vogelsong had a 3.74 ERA in 12 games, including two starts.If theres a blessing in disguise of getting hit, its the fact that I got to deal with (Pirates pitching coach) Ray Searage every day for two months, Vogelsong said. I just got to start from ground zero when we were playing catch on the rehab process and just really starting over and trying to get rid of some of the bad habits that I had gotten into.Edwin Jackson pitched two-hit ball over seven innings for San Diego, and Travis Jankowski capped the scoring with a straight steal of home.Jackson (3-2) took a no-hitter into the sixth inning before Jordy Mercers leadoff single. The 14-year veteran struck out seven and walked three while raising his career record against the Pirates to 10-3.The Pirates are a tough team to pitch against because they have guys who are threats all the way up and down the lineup, Jackson said. I was able to mix my pitches up and locate them.Since being called up July 17 from Triple-A El Paso, Jackson has recorded quality starts in four of five outings. The Miami Marlins released him June 2.Jankowskis steal came with two outs in the eighth. The rookie center fielder took off during catcher Eric Fryers return throw to pitcher Antonio Bastardo and scored standing up when Fryer could not handle Bastardos low throw to the plate.It was the fourth time the Padres had a straight steal of home this season, and the second by Jankowski.We know they like to run but we talked more just about the running game with guys on first and second, we never worked for a play at the plate, Bastardo said. That caught me by surprise.Jankowski was 2 for 4 with a double and the only player on either side with multiple hits.Ryan Buchter and Brandon Maurer completed the two-hitter with one perfect inning each.The Padres capitalized on a throwing error by Vogelsong and a fielding error by third baseman Jung Ho Kang to score twice in the second inning.Ryan Schimpf doubled and scored on Alexei Ramirezs single in the seventh to make it 3-0.The Pirates remained 2 1/2 games behind the Miami Marlins for the second NL wild card.TRAINERS ROOMPirates: C Francisco Cervelli left the game in the fifth inning with left wrist discomfort. ... 1B John Jaso sat after sustaining a bruised left eye in a home plate collision Tuesday night, though he passed MLBs concussion protocol. ...

The French clubs owner Mourad Boudjellal, who publishes comic books, claimed Armitage told him Jones had been in contact to clear the way to an international return.Former London Irish back row Armitage has spent six years in exile due to Twickenhams ruling that overseas players can only be selected in exceptional circumstances. Armitage, who was named 2014 European Player of the Year, has one year left on his contract and his availability has been made known to Aviva Premiership clubs, with Wasps and Bath his likely destinations if a move materialises.But Jones was quick to play down speculation he has been in touch with Armitage, whose brother Delon plays alongside him at Toulon and also represented England before his move to the Top 14.Youve got to remember the bloke who makes the comments writes comic books. I will leave it at that, said Jones.I dont know whether he writes them or sells them but he has made plenty of money out of them. Batman and Robin wont be in the team.When asked if there had been any contact with Armitage, Jones added: Not that I know of.People have false Facebook posts and false Twitter accounts, so I suppose you can have a false phone call.
