      Twins SP Ervin Santana gives up two runs in loss to Royals

      Twins starting pitcher Ervin Santana (7-5) surrendered two runs on four hits and three walks while striking out three over seven innings in Friday's loss to the Royals. After an uneven suspension-shortened season, Santana ended his 2015 regular season on a high note. Tossing at least seven innings in each of his final seven outings of the season, Santana has posted a 1.62 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, 8.45 K/9 and 0.2 HR/9 since Aug. 30. Whether or not Minnesota advances through October, Santana has established a strong foundation for 2016.

      Twins SP Ervin Santana picks up seventh win Sunday vs. Tigers

      Twins starter Ervin Santana improved to 7-4 by allowing just one run over seven innings with five strikeouts in Sunday's win over Detroit. Santana continues his strong late season hot streak as he has a 1.47 ERA with a 44:11 K:BB ratio in 43 innings over his last six starts. Too bad for the Twins that he's ineligible for the playoffs should Minnesota make the postseason due to Santana's PED suspension that caused him to miss the first half of the season.

      Twins SP Ervin Santana earns sixth win with fine outing Tuesday

      Twins starter Ervin Santana improved to 6-4 with a win Tuesday over Cleveland, as he allowed just one run on five hits and a walk over seven innings. He struck out seven. Santana was brutal in his first 10 starts, with a 6.05 ERA, but he is on a massive roll now. This marks his fifth straight quality start, and he has gone at least seven innings, allowed no more than two runs, and struck out 39 against nine walks. His ERA is 4.31 and all of a sudden it looks the Twins will really miss Santana if they manage to sneak into the playoff as he is ineligible due to his early season drug suspension.

      Twins SP Ervin Santana settles for no-decision Wednesday

      Twins starting pitcher Ervin Santana gave up two runs on four hits and four walks, while striking out five in seven innings Wednesday against Detroit. He settled for a no-decision. After a truly awful slump from July 29 to Aug. 25 (31 earned runs in 33 innings with a 4.1 K/9), Santana has remarkably turned his season around by going seven innings or more in his last four starts. He has a 1.55 ERA and 9.9 K/9 in that span.

      Twins SP Ervin Santana shines, gets win in pitcher's duel Saturday

He walked two and tied a career-high with 11 strikeouts. Santana (4-4) lowered his ERA to 4.93 with the fine outing on Saturday. The only run he allowed came in the fifth inning, as he and Lance McCullers locked horns in a pitcher's duel for the first half of the game. Santana left the game with the score tied 1-1, but the Twins brought in two runs in the top of the ninth, en route to the 3-2 victory. After scuffling through most of August, Santana has looked very good his last two times out now. He has won two straight starts, allowing just one run over 15 innings.

      Twins SP Ervin Santana serves up two homers in loss to Yankees

      Twins starter Ervin Santana pitched well in his outing against the Yankees on Wednesday. But he was left with his fourth loss of the season in the 4-3 defeat. Santana allowed four runs on seven hits over 7 2/3 innings. He walked two and struck out six. Santana (2-4, 5.53 ERA) was tormented by Yankees rookie Greg Bird in this one. Bird connected for a pair of two-run home runs, accounting for all of the runs the Yankees would score in the game. The Twins right-hander has now given up three runs or more in five straight starts, going 0-4 with an 8.48 ERA over that stretch.

      Poor efforts continue Thursday for Twins SP Ervin Santana

      The good news is that Twins veteran Ervin Santana performed better Thursday than he did in his previous start. The bad news is he was still pretty bad. Santana received plenty of offensive support, but could not take advantage of it in a no-decision. He allowed five runs on eight hits in six innings with two walks and just one strikeout. He worked out of jams in the first two innings, but not in the fourth, when a Mitch Moreland two-run homer cut his lead to 4-2. He lost that advantage as well in a three-run, four-hit fifth highlighted by an RBI single by Prince Fielder and two-run double by Moreland. Santana has not won since July 23. He has since yielded 22 earned runs in 20 innings to send his ERA soaring from 2.60 to 5.66.
