Right-handed pitcher Tyler Santana has been cruising this season, especially as of late. The 24-year-old earned Carolina League Player of the Month honors for his efforts in July. With the Chicago Cubs’ Low-A affiliate, the Myrtle Beach Pelicans, Santana pitched 27.1 innings yielding only a 1.32 ERA with seven walks and 24 strikeouts.

But he wasn’t willing to slow up after July. After getting into some trouble and allowing a run in the first inning of Thursday’s game against the Lynchburg Hillcats, Santana settled in nicely. He wound up pitching seven strong innings without allowing a run after the first and finished with one walk and 10 strikeouts to earn his ninth victory of the season.

For the season, Tyler Santana has a 9-1 record with a 2.28 ERA and only two home runs allowed in 86.2 IP between the bullpen and rotation. The Pelicans take on the Hillcats again tonight at Pelicans Ballpark and lefty Didier Vargas will get the starting nod.
