Santana allowed four runs - two earned - on seven hits and two walks while striking out six batters through five innings during Sunday's win over the Tigers. He didn't factor into the decision. Despite being hurt by errors in each of his past two starts, Santana has still managed to turn in a pair of solid outings. He's now allowed two earned runs in three consecutive starts (and five of his last seven), leaving his ERA at a respectable 3.27 on the season. He'll look to turn in another solid effort when he toes the rubber against the Diamondbacks on Friday.
Santana allowed four runs -- two earned -- on six hits and a walk while striking out six batters through six innings during Monday's win over Milwaukee. He didn't factor into the decision. Santana entered Monday's outing with a 4.58 ERA through his past six starts -- a mark in line with the veteran's season-long 4.79 FIP. He's still allowed two earned runs or fewer in half those starts, and this was another solid outing from Santana. He'll take a 3.27 ERA, WHIP and 7.1 K/9 into his next start against the Tigers at Comerica Park.
Santana (12-7) gave up two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out nine in a complete-game win over the Padres on Wednesday. He pounded the strike zone with 82 strikes out of 110 pitches, and Santana's only real mistake came in the fourth inning when Jose Pirela drove a fastball over the wall in center field for a two-run homer. The 34-year-old right-hander has now set a new career high with his fifth complete game of the season, and he'll take a 3.28 ERA into his next outing Monday at home against the Brewers.
Santana gave up four runs on seven his while striking out seven in 6.2 innings but didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 6-5 loss to the Dodgers. The veteran righty was on track for his 12th win before Brandon Kintzler blew his fourth save of the year. Home runs continue to be an issue for Santana -- he's served up eight in his last five starts, leaving him with a 5.34 ERA over that stretch. Fortunately for him, his next outing comes Wednesday against the Padres in the pitcher's haven known as Petco Park.
Santana gave up five runs over 3.1 innings with three strikeouts, but seven hits including two home runs in Friday's loss to Detroit. It was Santana's shorting outing of the season and shortest since May 7, 2016. Santana has alternated very good and very poor outings since the start of June. In his last nine starts he's given up five or more runs five times and allowed two or fewer runs four times.
