SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Giants right-hander Ryan Vogelsong has broken his pitching hand while batting against the Washington Nationals.

Vogelsong broke two bones along his pinkie and dislocated a knuckle in the same area when he fouled off a pitch in the fifth inning Monday night. He is scheduled for surgery Tuesday and expected to miss four to six weeks.

Vogelsong had a 6-0 lead when he got hurt and earned the win in San Francisco’s 8-0 victory, his first since April 11. 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 had been mired in a six-start winless stretch but appeared back on track Monday night with five scoreless innings of three-hit ball.
