Ervin Santana Tosses No-Hitter In Cleveland

Using 105 pitches, Ervin Santana pitched a no-hitter Wednesday afternoon in Cleveland. Santana had his slider working as he struck out 10, while walking just one. The closest the Indians came to getting a hit came in the 6th when Jason Kipnis hit a hard groundball up the middle that second baseman Howie Kendrick made a great diving stop to throw out Kipnis.

The pitching gem was the first no-hitter for an Angels pitcher in 27 years. Mike Witt tossed a perfect game against the Texas Rangers on September 30, 1984.

The Angels tied the game in the 5th when Peter Bourjos tripled to left to lead-off the inning. Bourjos scored on Mike Trout’s sacrifice fly to right.

The Halos took the lead in the 6th and added an insurance run in the 9th when Torii Hunter scored from third on Carlos Santana’s passed ball, just beating the tag at the plate with a nice head-first slide to make it a 2-1 ballgame. Bourjos plated Howie Kendrick with a single up the middle to put the Angels up 3-1.

After Erick Aybar's error in the first allowed Ezequiel Carrera to reach base, Santana retired 22 in a row before walking Lonnie Chisenhall with one out in the 8th.  The Indians run was scored in the bottom of the first on an error, stolen base, groundout and then a passed ball.
