Four San Francisco Giants pitchers make All-Star lineup 

Four of the San Francisco Giants powerhouse pitchers will showcase their talent as part of the 2011 All Star Game in Phoenix.

Tim Lincecum, Matt Cain and Brian Wilson will return to the all-star mound and this year will be joined by Ryan Vogelsong.

Vogelsong joined the Giants rotation when starting pitcher Barry Zito was put on the disabled list for a sprained ankle earlier this year. He was originally drafted by the Giants in 1998.

The 33-year-old pitcher started Sunday’s game against the Detroit Tigers, hoping to sweep the series. The Giants lead the National Leagues, western division 48-36, three games ahead of the Arizona Cardinals.

The July 12 all-star game will be Lincecum’s fourth appearance in a row. Cain will return for his second appearance after playing for the team in 2009. Wilson is headed to the all-star game for the third time in four years.
