Early Start In Cleveland For Ervin Santana, Angels

The front desk of the Angels hotel was probably swamped with wake-up call requests Tuesday night as the Angels and Indians will play an early 12:05 (EDT) finale to their 3-game series Wednesday morning/afternoon.  The early start time should be something the Angels might be getting used to as they'll play another afternoon game in Thursday's series opener in Detroit.  The Angels are 20-15 in day games and 36-33 at night this season.

Getting up early for the Halos will be Ervin Santana (5-8, 3.69 ERA).  Santana has been somewhat inconsistent this season as his record would indicate.  Sporting a 3.69 ERA usually translates into at least a .500 season, however the right-hander has suffered through bouts of allowing home runs and receiving almost no run-support.  Over his last four starts, Santana has managed to keep the ball in the park, getting the decision in 2 of 3 Angel wins.  Prior to that four-game span, Santana had allowed 9 home runs in 6 starts and losing 4 straight.

In his last outing on July 22nd, Santana went 7.2 innings in Baltimore, allowing one run on 3 hits.

Making his second start of the 2011 season for Cleveland is David Huff (1-0, 0.00 ERA).  The left-hander pitched seven shutout innings against Minnesota July 18th in his first start.
