Dominican Santana Pitched a No-Hitter

Dominican pitcherErvin Santana pitched a no-hitter yesterday for the Los Angeles Angels for the first time after 27 years.

With an impeccable work on the mound, the right got his ninth victory over the Cleveland Indians, by score of 3-1.

Santana struck out 10 batters and allowed only two players advancing, center fielder Ezequiel Carrera, who reached base by taking advantage of an error, and a man with a walk in the eighth.

The pitcher dominated the Cleveland battery and threw the first no-hit solo club Los Angeles from September 30, 1984.

After releasing his pitching gem, Santana said after removing the eighth realized it was close to launching the game no-hitter.

"Many pitchers feel that after five or six innings, but that's where things start to get complicated," said Ramirez, knowingly, as in his previous opening, against Baltimore Orioles right-hander did not allow that connect you to hit during the first five innings.
