No K-Rod, no problem: Santana hurls complete game shutout

Aug 12, 2010, 2:47 PM EST

With closer Francisco Rodriguez “unavailable” for this afternoon’s game, Johan Santana stepped up with a complete-game shutout of the Rockies.
Santana had 110 pitches through eight innings, but came out for the ninth anyway and needed just five more throws for his eighth career shutout and fourth since joining the Mets.
He allowed just four hits and two walks while racking up 10 strikeouts for the 49th double-digit strikeout game of his career. Santana improved to 10-6 with the victory and also sliced his ERA to 2.89, which is tied with Chris Carpenter for ninth in the league.
Santana had a 3.11 ERA in 175 starts with the Twins. He now has a 2.82 ERA in 84 starts with the Mets.
