ON THE MOUND: Hector Santiago was scheduled to throw four innings, but his high pitch count (66) limited to him 2 2/3 innings in which he gave up three runs — one earned — and four hits, struck out four and walked two. But the left-hander was pleased with the development of his slider, a pitch he is trying to use more this season, and his overall stuff and command. "Today was a positive day," Santiago said. "It may not look like it, but pitch-wise, I felt great, I located on both sides of the zone, kept the ball down, got a couple swings and misses with my changeup and slider, threw first-pitch curves for strikes … everything was where it needed to be." Mike Morin struck out two batters in a scoreless sixth inning, and Al Alburquerque struck out three in a scoreless seventh. Joe Smith gave up a long two-run home run to Mac Williamson in the fifth.
