Twins' Ervin Santana has rough start against Pirates on Wednesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Twins starter Ervin Santana got roughed by the Pirates on Wednesday afternoon, as the right-hander fell to 2-1 on the season. Santana allowed eight runs (six earned) on eight hits over 5 2/3 innings. His control evaded him in this one, as he walked four and struck out three, throwing 65 of his 107 pitches for strikes in the 10-4 loss.

Santana gave up a solo home run to Jung Ho Kang in the second inning, but the Twins were able to take a 3-1 lead after the third. Santana, however, was unable to hold the lead. He surrendered a two-run shot to Andrew McCutchen in the fifth, and allowd three more runs to score in the sixth. 

This was Santana's fifth start of the season after completing an 80-game suspension. He has had three dazzling appearances, and two clunkers, including Wednesday's. Overall, the veteran owns a 3.78 ERA this season.
