Santana no-hits the Indians

Ervin SantanaBy C. Trent Rosecrans

Ervin Santana had started 10 games against the Indians in his career and earned his first victory against Cleveland on Wednesday -- but that's not the story. The story is that he did it without allowing a hit.

Santana struck out 10 and walked one in his no-hitter and a 3-1 Angels victory.

Only an Erick Aybar error kept the game from being a perfect game into the eighth inning -- and kept Santana from picking up the shutout. Ezequiel Carrera led off the bottom of the first with a ball misplayed by Aybar and then stole second. He went to third on Asdrubal Cabrera's one-out ground out and scored on a wild pitch, to give Cleveland a lead.

After Carrera's error, Santana retired 22 in a row before walking Lonnie Chisenhall with one out in the eighth inning.

Santana is the first pitcher to allow a run, but no hits since Darryl Kile's no-hitter on Sept. 8, 1993 for the Astros against the Mets. In 2008, Jered Weaver and Jose Arredondo didn't allow a hit and gave up two runs to the Dodgers, but that wasn't considered a no-hitter because the Dodgers didn't bat in the ninth.

In his last start, Santana took a no-hitter into the sixth inning against the Orioles and ended up allowing three in 7 2/3 innings in a victory. 

Here's a list of no-hitters in American League history and the last no-hitter for each franchise

Man, I love irony.  Here's maddog3584, who apparently has no understanding whatsoever of baseball, calling other people brainless and accusing them of manufacturing a story.  Priceless.  Thanks for letting me laugh at your ignorance, Doyers fan.

"Only an error kept the game from being a perfect game into the eighth inning -- kept Santana from pickup up the shutout." 

Only the lack of a proofreader kept this report from being perfect also.

Maddog--the rules as to what qualifies as a no-hitter say nothing about whether or not a run was scored.  There have actually been two no-nos where the team that got no hits won--look up Harvey Haddox, he threw one of them, and the other was between the Orioles and Tigers in 1967, the Tigers got 2 runs w/o a hit and won 2-1.  They count as no-hitters even though the team that gave up no hits lost.  So yes, Santana's counts as a no-no even though Cleveland scored.
