Santos bounces back, gets clean save

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

MINNEAPOLIS -- Sergio Santos got back on the horse and got the save.

After giving up two home runs in a crushing defeat against the Tigers on Saturday, then getting pulled in the ninth on Monday as Chris Sale came in for the save, Santos pitched a 1-2-3 ninth in the White Sox' 3-0 victory against the Twins.

"After you have a couple rough ones it's good to have a clean one and put that in the past,'' Santos said.

"I try to take every situation as the same. Obviously it's easier to have a clean inning where you go in from the beginning because you have your routine that you're used to. It's nice to go out there and get some outs.''

The wins don't mean much any more, but the Sox will take them regardless. This was their third in a row against Minnesota.

"Absolutely,'' Santos said. "We got beat up pretty good in Detroit and to come out here against Minnesota who we don't usually play well against, it was good to put some runs up and pitch really well. We're playing really good baseball right now. Hopefully we can finish this year right.''

Santos has 29 saves in 34 opportunities.
