Angels SP Hector Santiago earns no-decision after quality start


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/28/2015) Angels starter Hector Santiago was solid Sunday, but didn't factor in the decision after his team rallied for an extra-inning victory over the Mariners. 

Santiago gave up just three hits in his seven innings of work, giving up one run while striking out six batters. But he continued his season-long pattern of no-decisions, with five of his last six outings ending up with the pitcher without a mark on his ledger. 

Santiago, who hasn't won since May 29, is 4-4 with a 2.58 ERA. 


Angels P Hector Santiago posts two-hitter in no-decision


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2015) Angels pitcher Hector Santiago allowed only one run in a no-decision during Monday night’s 4-3 win over the Astros.

Santiago went six innings and only gave up two hits in the game. He struck out four batters while walking one. That gives Santiago 19 strikeouts over his past three starts.

Santiago now has an ERA of 2.68 this season.

His next start is projected for Sunday against the Mariners.


Angels P Hector Santiago strikes out 9 in loss


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Despite the loss and the three runs, Santiago had a solid game. He struck out nine batters and walked only two. He allowed seven hits in the outing. Santiago now has an ERA of 2.77 and is 4-4 this season. 

Santiago's next start is projected for June 22 against the Astros.

Angels P Hector Santiago delivers quality out of bullpen Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/6/2015) Pitcher Hector Santiago was an Angel out of the bullpen for the Angels on Saturday. Santiago was called into relief duty in the second inning with the Angels down 7-0 to the Yankees.

Santiago, who was pitching on two-days rest, twirled 3 2/3 innings of shutout baseball, allowing two hits and striking out three. He lowered his season ERA to 2.55.

With a couple of scheduled off-days coming up, the Angels already planned on pushing Santiago's next start back to Friday, so it wasn't a surprise to see him come out of the bullpen. Still, it was a solid performance to help save some of the other relief corps in the Angels' bullpen.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Shoemaker hasn't started since Sunday and will go six games in between starts. Santiago, who pitched five innings on Wednesday, is also slated to get six days off.

Scioscia had already indicated that Shoemaker could be available out of the bullpen. It is not known if Santiago could also pitch in relief if needed.

Santiago cruised through five innings but hit a wall in the sixth, hitting a batter before serving up a two-run home run to Joey Butler. He then allowed a single and a walk before surrendering his second homer of the inning to Steven Souza and being removed from the game immediately after.

Santiago owns a 2.69 ERA and 60:27 K:BB ratio in 67 innings. He's slated to face the Rays again on Monday in Tampa.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2015) Angels pitcher Hector Santiago took the loss on Sunday, giving up three earned runs on seven hits and one walk in 6 2/3 innings while striking out six in his team's 6-1 defeat against the Red Sox.

Santiago (3-3) threw a whopping 124 pitches in the outing. He gave up a two-run home run in the second inning but limited the Red Sox to just an RBI sacrifice fly before his exit to earn a quality start.

"I think they lost the leash," Santiago said to the Orange County Register. "That's good. Shows a lot of confidence in me, going out there and trying to prove myself."

Santiago owns a 2.47 ERA and 50:22 K:BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Tigers on Friday.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Santiago allowed a leadoff home run to Josh Donaldson in the first inning, but settled down and did not have another issue until the fifth. Santiago allowed the leadoff hitter to reach on a throwing error, who then scored on a sacrifice fly.

"Santiago was really good," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said, per MLB.com. "He was picking the plate apart pretty good, he was pounding that inside corner and he was painting it pretty good."

Santiago, now 3-2, moved his ERA to 2.25 in 48 innings of work. He will look to keep rolling Sunday against the Red Sox.


Angels' Hector Santiago strikes out eight in no-decision


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2015) Angels pitcher Hector Santiago didn't factor into the decision on Wednesday, allowing just one earned run on seven hits in six innings while striking out eight and walking none in his team's 2-1, 11-inning win over the Rockies.

Santiago owns a 2.41 ERA and 39:18 K:BB ratio in 41 innings. He's scheduled to square off with the Blue Jays in Toronto on Tuesday.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Santiago struck out five batters and walked four during Thursday's start. He was able to lower his ERA to 2.57, but he received a no-decision for his effort. Santiago has now allowed one earned run or less in four of his six starts this season.

His next expected start is scheduled for Wednesday against the Rockies. 


Luck runs out Saturday for Angels lefty Hector Santiago


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/2/2015) Angels left-hander Hector Santiago was a little lucky in allowing 10 baserunners in his last start against Texas and allowing just one run in a no-decision.

His luck ran out Saturday against the Giants.

Santiago gave up nine hits and two walks in five innings. The result was four runs and a record that fell to 2-2. He fanned four along the way.

His trouble began in the second with three singles, including a two-run job for Nori Aoki. Santiago then surrendered a solo home run to Brandon Crawford in the fourth and run-scoring single to Casey McGehee in the fifth. A pinch-hitter in the sixth ended his afternoon.

Santiago will seek a bounce-back Thursday against Houston.
