Players of the night
Ervin Santana - Angels
9 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 6 K
It has been a rough season for Santana. For the first time in his career, he has battled injuries. Santana made only two starts in June, and posted an ERA over 7 upon returning in July.
Perhaps yesterday's performance in just what he needs to get back on track.
It's not like Santana hasn't been dependable before. He won 16 games last year and was one of the best strikeout pitchers in baseball. He's owned in 3/4 of fantasy leagues, but could be a good pickup if he's on the waiver wire in your league.

1B Adrian Gonzalez - Padres
6-6, 3 RBI, 2 R
Yes, Adrian Gonzalez is still in San Diego. The national media might not notice, but fantasy players sure do.
Gonzalez did something unusual last night, though. He turned into a contact hitter. Five of his six hits went for singles.
Fantasy owners will take it, to be sure. Gonzalez's only problem is his low BA, which now sits at .262. As long as the homers and RBI keep coming though, it's not too much of a concern.
