Santana pitches the third no-hitter of the season, the ninth in Angels history
Ervin Santana tossed a no-hitter Wednesday afternoon against the Clevelnd Indians, beating the Tribe, 3-1. Santana is the kind of pitcher who can shut down a lineup with electric stuff and the endurance to get through nine innings. He just doesn’t do it consistently. But when he’s on, he’s tough to hit. The Indians’ lone run came in the first inning after leadoff batter Ezequiel Carrera reached on an error by shortstop Erick Aybar, stole second went to third on a fielder’s choice before scoring on a Santana wild pitch.
