Angels' Hector Santiago strikes out six in loss vs. Red Sox


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.


Angels pitcher Hector Santiago strikes out five in win


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) Angels pitcher Hector Santiago allowed two runs, one earned, on four hits in seven innings of work in Los Angeles' 3-2 win over the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

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.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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.

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.
