The Santana legend grows
As if going 4-for-5 with a pair of homers, a double and 4 RBIs wasn’t enough (or, in the parlance of the recently concluded Passover holiday — Dayenu), there’s more for the Santana Opening Day file.
According to the report on the Columbus Dispatch blog about the Clippers, the first homer was a revenge shot. Earlier in the game, Carlos Carrasco plunked Indianapolis’ Brian Friday in the third. Kevin Hart threw behind Santana in the fourth and got tossed. So Santana greeted reliever Jeremy Powell by hitting one over the scoreboard.
Oh, and it’s his birthday to boot.
Can’t make this stuff up, folks.
