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.

Carlos Santana locked in

The Indians catching (or should I say hitting) prospect was 3-for-4, already with two solo home runs, two RBIs and two runs scored, when he came to the plate with the bases loaded in the seventh inning. It’s part of an 8-run seventh inning for Columbus. They’re spanking Indianapolis, 16-4.

And he doubled. Drove in two more. Not a bad opener, huh?  4 hits, 2 HR, a double, 4 RBIs…

Alvarez and Santana do what they do

You have to love when top prospects are in the same game and deliver what people want to see.

Such is the case in the Indianapolis-Columbus game. Indians catching prospect Carlos Santana has hit one of three Clippers homers to give a 4-3 lead. For his part, top Pirates prospect Pedro Alvarez has hit a two-run shot for Indy. Carlos Carrasco on the mound for Columbus in that one, btw.
