Santana (15-8) allowed two runs on seven hits and one walk across 5.2 innings while taking the loss Monday against the Yankees. He struck out three. Santana pitched well for the most part, but a solo home run from Aaron Judge in the first inning and a sacrifice fly from Todd Frazier in the sixth sunk him to his eighth loss. He came within one out of his second straight quality start and ran his K:BB to a solid 15:4 in September. Santana continues to deliver solid outings for the contending Twins and will look to get back in the win column Saturday against the Tigers.
Santana threw six scoreless innings Wednesday, allowing three hits and one walk with seven strikeouts, but took a no-decision in a win over the Padres. It was his 19th quality start in 30 starts this season. Santana had struggled in his last three with a 5.40 ERA (11 earned runs in 18.1 innings) and just a 5.9 K/9, so it was good to see him get back on track.
Santana (15-7) allowed four runs on five hits and a walk with three strikeouts over five innings but still picked up the win Friday against the Royals. The Royals got to Santana in consecutive starts, as Santana allowed four runs on eight hits over 6.2 innings to the Royals last time out Monday. Somehow, Santana managed to come out 1-0 over those two starts, though. Everything has been coming up Ervin this season, as Santana now has his first 15-win campaign since he picked up 17 victories for the Angels all the way back in 2010.
Santana allowed four runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out just two batters through 6.2 innings during Sunday's loss to Kansas City. The veteran righty posted a rock-solid 2.95 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 9.5 K/9 through six August starts, so this wasn't a great start to September. However, with the Twins in the playoff hunt, Santana is still in position to finish the season strong and post one of the best fantasy campaigns of his career. He projects to face the Royals at Kauffman Stadium in his next start.
Santana (14-7) beat the White Sox on Tuesday after allowing three runs on seven hits with two walks and seven strikeouts over 6.2 innings. Santana held Chicago off the board until the sixth inning, allowing his team to pile up an insurmountable lead in what ended as a 6-4 victory. The veteran righty has been a reliable option nearly every time out, notching quality starts in five of his past six tries. He'll have a great opportunity to add another one Sunday against the slumping Royals offense.
