Santana, Herrera, Holland Shut Down Tigers

Associated Press - July 19, 2013 10:29 pm

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Ervin Santana allowed two singles in 7 1/3 innings and the Kansas City Royals beat the Detroit Tigers 1-0 Friday night to snap a five game losing streak.

Santana, who can be a free agent after the season and has been widely speculated to be traded before the July 31 deadline without a player clearing waivers, did not allow a runner to reach second base. He walked one and struck out six.

Santana (6-6), who was coming off his worst outing of the season, when he allowed eight runs on 10 hits in a July 11 loss at Cleveland, retired the first 10 Tigers before Torii Hunter’s one out single in the fourth.

Greg Holland worked a flawless ninth for his 23rd save in 25 opportunities, striking out one.
