Carlos Santana. So hot right now. Santana.
Cleveland Indians first baseman Carlos Santana is hot.
Cue the “Match Game” audience response: “How hot is he?” (If you get the “Match Game” reference, please pat yourself on the back.
- He now has five multi-homer games in his career – and two came this weekend (Friday, Sunday)
- He’s the first player in Indians history with multi-homer games as a catcher, designated hitter and first baseman
- He’s homered in three straight games and four of his last six (he has six homers in his last six games)
- Over his last six games:
- He’s reached base safely in 20 of 29 plate appearances
- He’s gone 14-for-23 (.609) with 3 doubles, 6 homers, 10 RBI, 5 walks and 8 runs scored
Santana hit five homers in the KC series, becoming only the sixth Indians player to have five homers in a series (Hafner, Williams, Belle, Carter, Trosky). Santana also became the first Major Leaguer to have five homers in one series this season.
Also, just in case you don’t get the headline — “Zoolander,” anyone?
